Ha Mardrij - La Guia based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
As Director of Education of a congregation in a Spanish-speaking area, HaMadrij is just what I needed but couldn't find: a comprehensive guide to modern Judaism written in Spanish. In just one volume, it covers a wide range of topics, from Jewish history to basic precepts, conversion, etc. -- and it does so from a neutral perspective, highlighting Orthodox and non-Orthodox viewpoints. It's perfect for outreach programs, Spanish-speaking Jews interested in returning to Judaism, as well as potential converts or non-Jews simply interested in Judaism. A quality "Judaism 101" book, ideal for individuals or classes. What I like most about HaMadrij is its user-friendly format: the "Consulta rapida" sections at the end of every section, and its extensive appendix, especially the exhaustive glossary. It's really the best Intro. to Judaism book I've seen in Spanish.
