I was pleasantly surprised to see that a new volume (IX) has been published of Rav Shamshon Raphael Hirsch's writings. It has been a long time since the publishing of volume VIII.
What is fascinating is that the timeless essays are just as relevant in the 21st century as they were in the 19th.
The description below is from Feldheim's website:
This supplemental volume to the Collected Writings of Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch contains articles not published in the original 8 volumes, as well as a comprehensive subject and source index to the entire Collected Writings series.
The articles reflect the ever-valid Hirschian ideology, on the following topics:
Naphtulei Niphtalti-a refutation of Reform rationales
Jewish Observations - a statement against anti-Semitism and derision of Torah
Rabbinic Judaism and General Education - an affirmation of ""Torah im Derech Eretz""
Address: Schiller Centenary - an evaluation of the worth of the secular within Torah parameters
Outrage in Hamburg - a criticism of a Jewish community's response to a forbidden marriage, thereby highlighting the need for independent Orthodoxy
Address: Battle of the Nations - an appreciation of civil freedom and its meaning for Jews
Two Letters - on the Aggadah - an analysis of the authority of Halachah and Aggadah
Carmel and Sinai - a call to faithful Torah observance amidst the challenge of the times
