  • A Student's Guide to Jewish American Genealogy. Oryx American Family Tree Series
    This book provides a step-by-step guide to genealogical research in the United States and other countries for Jewish Americans. The book also contains information on the history of the Jews, including the Diaspora, the Holocaust, immigration to the United States, and the establishment of the modern state of Israel.
  • The Jewish Ethical Tradition in the Modern University
    Proposes an interpretation of pluralism and multiculturalism that separates these concepts from the notions of relativism. Asserts that the inclusion of formerly excluded cultural traditions such as Judaism in North American universities has been a give-and-take enterprise.
  • Towards a Multicultural Society: Bringing Postmodernism into the Classroom
    Asserts that western civilization's belief in the differentiation between object and subject impedes a true multicultural discourse. Praises the postmodernist approach, that self-evident reality is actually a politically constructed text, as being useful in identifying subjectivity.
