Editorial Reviews

An overview of the Jewish faith is given through a variety of well-selected, authoritative articles and book excerpts. Topics addressed comprise historical background; basic beliefs and what they entail; ways the faith is interpreted, preserved, and changing; the influence of important people; and issues and trends confronting contemporary Jews. Information about the creation of the State of Israel and its significance is included, as well as ideas about the role of women in Judaism and the challenge of interfaith marriages. This book is appropriate for both Jewish teens who wish to consider impressions and ideas reflected by respected sources examining their faith and non-Jewish teens who are interested in gaining some insights as to what Jewish faith and history are about. A practical title for teens wanting more information to apply to their personal experiences is Rabbi Edward Feinstein's Tough Questions Jews Ask: A Young Adult's Guide to Building a Jewish Life (Jewish Lights Publishing, 2004), and more thorough factual information can be found in Student's Encyclopedia of Judaism, (New York University Press, 2004). Both might serve as companions to Judaism in library collections for teens. (Religions and Religious Movements).
