In a blend of sound scholarship and clear narrative style, integrated into a unified presentation unlike that of any other encyclopedia, Nathan Ausubel covers every area of Jewish life, treating the secular as well as the religious elements. He takes you into the very minds of the scholars and sages, showing how laws have been interpreted through the centuries, how religion and custom have been adjusted to changing times so that the oldest living major religion of mankind is still very much alive. And through all of this vast body of information he shows how one theme~the Jewish reverence for learning ~dominates. Thousands of items~never mere definitions but extensive full~scale articles~answer the questions that have been asked for generations and help the reader to distinguish between law and custom, tradition and superstition. The hundreds of subjects, presented in alphabetical order, include topics such as the Talmud, martyrs, angels, Bar Mitzvah, burial rites and customs, the hereafter, the Cabala, circumcision, dietary laws, confession, divorce, immortality, Kaddish, marriage and intermarriage, free will, resurrection, and reward and punishment. Manv hundreds more are covered in the various discussions, and the reader is guided to these by the general index. The scope of the book's coverage is indicated by the 10,000 entries in the index. A special Index of Persons and a section of the text provide essential information about the noteworthy Jewish figures who have influenced world as well as Jewish history, culture, and belief. THE BOOK OF JEWISH KNOWLEDGE IS an outstanding contribution to the true understanding of the great dramatic background, rich cultural heritage, and incomparable spirit of the Jewish people. It is a fascinating, constantly useful, and permanently valuable reference volume~one that belongs in every library and home. Seller Inventory # 4111602
