Children's LiteratureFor Jews around the globe, the Torah is the centerpiece of religious faith. Written on parchment scrolls that, if fully unfolded, would be as long as a football field, the Torah contains the central spiritual tenets of a faith that is followed by approximately thirteen million people. Crafted by specially trained copyists who must strictly follow guidelines as to making corrections, not allowing letters to touch, and making no typos, the Torah is a spiritual document that has a history spanning back to the Ten Commandments. In The Torah and Judaism, writer Vivienne Cato touches upon the history, nature, and place of this spiritual text in the religion of its adherents. A part of the six-volume "Sacred Texts" series, this book combines a well-written narrative with insightful structure. This is a book that will introduce readers to the central beliefs of Judaism while also affording a glimpse into a spiritual world that is both rich and historic in nature. 2004, Smart Apple Media, Ages 10 to 14.
