From the early history of Judaism to the festivals celebrated today, World Faiths: Judaism is the definitive guide to the world's oldest monotheistic religion. All of the significant events, including the destruction of the Temple and the Diaspora, are vividly recounted.

REVIEWS

Praise for Judaism

Children's Literature
This is a beautiful, lavishly-illustrated book.

VOYA

Here is a colorful, non-intimidating series that manages to pluck out some of the more interesting aspects of four of the world's great religions. These inexpensive paperback books have the lavish pictorial interest of coffee-table books...This series is particularly well suited for middle school collections where there is a call for comparing religious traditions, but it could be used in high school and public libraries as well.

KLIATT

Briefly, and with beautifully produced full-color illustrations, these books summarize the essential facts about the world's major religions...In our multicultural society, these essential guides to the major faiths will be most helpful. Even high school students will find them useful introductions.
