Synopsis:

An excellent resource for Jewish families to keep on hand for household use, The Student's Encyclopedia of Judaism provides engaging and authoritative coverage of all aspects of the Jewish religion—its history, practices, and important figures as well as current thinking among the Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox movements.

"The Students Encyclopedia of Judaism is a wonderful resource to begin the process of learning...The scholarly entries have been reworked so that the subject matter is accesible to the younger reader."—Amit

"The book portrays a comprehensive picture of Jewish life. The entries in the book are easy to understand and concise. Both the English and Hebrew names of familiar items are cross-referenced in order to guide the reader, and they also lead the reader to further explore other ideas relating to the subject."—Signal Journal
