Mordecai Kaplan Diaries
These diaries, written between 1913 and 1972, are a window into the thoughts of this towering figure over the course of most of the twentieth century. Kaplan's diary reflects, often in intimate detail, on his work, the people he met, the political situation of his day, theology, and Judaism. His reflections during the Holocaust, on Zionism and the birth of the state of Israel, and on the development and challenges of the Reconstructionist Movement, are all major primary source material that is now open to students, scholars, and the general public.
