    Holier than Thou?

    I find the authors tone to be condescending and offensive. Judaism is a contantly morphing culture which the author seems to be completely ignorant of. Having been a member of Rabbi Wylen's congregation, I find that his Holier than Thou attitude is off-putting, and is most likely the reason why they have trouble keeping new families interested in the community.

    An excellent source of information

    As a Muslim, I trully enjoyed reading this above mentioned book by Mr. Wylen. His knowdelde of the subject matter is clear and easy to comprehend. This book is essential for anyone who wishes to have a basic yet comprensive understanding of Judaism.
