Review:

"An admirable introduction to what Jews do, what concerns them, and how these acts and concerns arose and evolved."

(Graham Harvey - Reader in Religious Studies, The Open University)

Written with clarity and authority by an expert in the field, this new encyclopedia offers an in-depth study of all facets of this rich tradition. Combining breadth with a readable yet concise style, the author has produced a comprehensive volume that is balanced and accessible. It features a complete historical survey of Judaism, and covers figures from Cain to Chagall, topics from fasting to euthanasia, and locations from the Garden of Eden to the Wailing Wall. Dan Cohn-Sherbok's Concise Encyclopedia of Judaism is a lucid and invaluable addition to the library of students and anyone interested in the Jewish faith past and present.
