School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 6-10-A well-balanced introduction to the history of Judaism and its present-day customs and controversies. The highlight of the book is the discussion of modern beliefs and rituals. Corona explains different levels of observance without partiality and details interesting facts about Jewish culture and famous people in the arts. Average-quality, black-and-white illustrations appear throughout. This title is similar in scope to Sue Penney's Judaism (Heinemann Library, 2000), which is more colorful but suited to a slightly younger audience.-Paula J.
