Overview

A Meeting-Place for the Wise: More Excursions into the Jewish Past and Present by Eliezer Segal

This volume brings together a diverse collection of studies related to Jewish history, culture religion and litgerature. The articles introduce the reader to a dazzling variety of personalities, ideologies, historical events and communal dynamics. The articles are written from a sympathetic, but non-dogmatic perspective by an expert in the academic study of the Jewish religion. They were originally published as newspaper columns, and are designed to entertain as much as to educate the intelligent non-specialist.
