Professor Breuer is the author of The Limits of Enlightenment: Jews,
Germans and the Eighteenth Century Study of Scripture. (Harvard University
Press, 1996). He has held teaching positions at the University of
Pennsylvania and the Spertus College of Judaica.
Your faithful DUS took courses from Prof. Breuer in graduate school at Penn a dozen years ago and found him to be one of his best teachers; more recently Pitt undergraduates who have studied abroad at Hebrew University have reported very favorably on Prof. Breuer's classes.
