Why is the Torah central to the Jewish faith? What goes on a synagogue worship service? Why is the land of Israel so important for Jews? These are just a few of the questions Rabbi Wayne Dosick answers in Living Judaism, a masterly overview of Jewish faith and tradition.
Living Judaism is a comprehensive introduction to the richness and grandeur of Judaism, as well as a thought-provoking reference guide for those already steeped in Jewish life. Celebrating the pluralism of the contemporary Jewish community, Living Judaism acknowledges and honors the broad spectrum of Jewish thought and the wide variety of Jewish observance. With a timeline of Jewish history and essays on the Jewish ideas of God, good and evil, the Bible, the Holocaust, and much more, Living Judaism is the definitive introduction to one of the world's great religions.
Rabbi Wayne Dosick, Ph.D., is the spiritual guide of the Elijah Minyan and adjunct professor of Jewish Studies at the University of San Diego. He is the author of the acclaimed Golden Rules, Dancing with God, and When Life Hurts.
"Living Judaism should be read by every Jew, Christian, and Muslim who wants to understand Judaism and celebrate faith."
-The Reverend Dr. Theodore M. Hesburgh, University of Notre DameBinding Type:
