Half a century has now elapsed since the first publication in 1950 of André
Neher’s Amos, contribution à l’étude du prophétisme. Born in Obernai
(Alsace) in 1914 and deceased in Jerusalem in 1988, André Neher was one
of the great thinkers of contemporary Judaism. His initial career as a
secondary-school German teacher was interrupted by the Second World
War, which he spent exiled in the ‘Free Zone’ engaged in intensive Jewish
study together with his father and brother.
