Overview

Taking an unwavering historical approach to its subject, Breslauer's text was born out of a contention that student's best learn the fundamentals of Judaism through an engagement with the historical contexts that generated the variety of Jewish religious beliefs and practices. Encountering Jewish religious expressions both within particular historical periods and across chronological eras, readers of this text will discover Judaism as a dynamic tradition, not merely a set of static ideas and actions. Above all, they will come to recognize Judaism as a religion marked perennially by a notable and important diversity.
