Living Judaism :the complete guide to Jewish belief, tradition, and practice Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Comprehensive, authoritative, and wonderfully engaging, this peerless guide to Jewish faith and practice belongs on the bookshelf of every Jewish family — and anyone interested in Jewish culture.

Why is the Torah Central to the Jewish Faith? How did the Talmud originate? What do Jewish holidays celebrate? What goes on in a synagogue worship service? How do kosher dietary laws work? Why is the land of Israel so important for Jews?

These are just a few of the questions Rabbi Wayne Dosick answers in this masterly overview of Jewish faith and tradition, now available in a handsome paperback edition. Writing in short, accessible chapters that cover Jewish beliefs, people, literature, holidays, worship, and living, he captures the essence of Judaism, honoring and explicating the diversity of Jewish thought and observance, from Reform and Conservative to Orthodox.

With a timeline of Jewish history and thought-provoking essays on the Jewish idea of God, good and evil, the messiah, believing in the Bible, prayer, right and wrong, the Holocaust, and Israel, Living Judaism is the definitive introduction to one of the world's great religions.

"The most informative and useful text currently available for the understanding and enrichment of Jewish living". — Rabbi David M. Posner, Congregation Emanu-El, New York

"Excellent — I think it's in a class by itself — readable, thorough, well organized". — Harvey Cos, Harvard Divinity School
