About the Author:
Rabbi and doctor of philosophy Marc-Alain Ouaknin is the director of the ALEPH Center for Jewish Studies (Paris) and an associate professor at the University of Bar-Ilan (Israel), where he teaches philosophy and comparative literature. Among his many works, Ouaknin has published The Burnt Book, I ll Tell You a Story, Mysteries of the Alphabet, Mysteries of the Kabbalah, and with Assouline, Symbols of Judaism (1995), and Haggadah: The Passover Story (in collaboration with Gérard Garouste, 2001).
Review:
Bar Mitzvah is a thoughtful, poetic, challenging, mystical, sometimes puzzling, stylishly designed maybe the first postmodern book on the subject. --Jewish Week
