Library Journal - Library Journal
The most sacred and adored object of Judaism is the Torah, the first five books of the Bible purportedly given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai over 3200 years ago. Popular in its orientation, this book uses a question-and-answer format to address over 500 questions frequently asked about the Torah. Included are queries regarding its origin (divine or human?), its handling in the synagogue, and its use in the liturgy and service. Kolatch's authoritative answers encompass all branches of Judaism but lean heavily to a traditionalist approach. An excellent index adds to the usefulness of the book. For most popular Judaica collections.-- Robert A. Silver, Shaker Heights P.L., Ohio
