The Jewish Religion: A Companion by Louis Jacobs soon to be presented for sale on the terrific BookLovers of Bath web site!
Published: Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1995, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: This is a unique, personal testimony and companion to the Jewish religion, in which the reader will find a wealth of information on just about every aspect of Jewish belief and practice, both ancient and modern from personalities in the Bible to Jewish thinkers and writers of the present day, customs, traditions, and Jewish ideas on subjects as diverse as dance, vegetarianism, and eternity. Arranged accessibly in alphabetical order, the entries assume no prior knowledge of Hebrew, and all Hebrew terms are fully explained in non-technical language. From Maimonides to Methuselah, Kabbalah to Kibbutz the book offers a riveting and invaluable repository of information for anyone, whether Jew or non-Jew, wanting to learn more about the incredibly rich and diverse heritage of the Jewish religion.
