ECE Journal

"Lupovitch is most successful when closely examining - among others - the nature of litigations between Jews and magnates, the everyday functioning of Jewish organizations, as well as, for instance, when analyzing the heated debates behind choosing a new rabbi for the community. Lupovitch convincingly supports his thesis about the middle-ground option of the Miskolc commmunity, and his work also prompts the re-examination of accepted tenets on East- and Central-European Jewish historiography through its investigation on the local level. Considering how substantially researched and well-written Jews at the Crossroads is, Lupovitch's community study is likely to prove an indispensable piece of Jewish history in the region."
