Publisher's Summary

Your plain-English guide to Judaism. Whether you're interested in the religion or the spirituality, the culture or the ethnic traditions, Judaism for Dummies explores the full spectrum of Judaism, dipping into the mystical, meditative, and spiritual depth of the faith and the practice. In this warm and welcoming audiobook, you'll find coverage of: Orthodox Jews and breakaway denominations; Judaism as a daily practice; the food and fabric of Judaism; Jewish wedding ceremonies; celebrations and holy days; 4,000 years of pain, sadness, triumph, and joy; great Jewish thinkers and historical celebrities; and much more. Updates to the "recent history" section with discussions of what has happened in the first decade of the 21st century including: the expansion of orthodox political power in Israel; expansion of interfaith work; unfortunate recent anti-Semitic events; and other news. Expanded coverage of Jewish mysticism and meditation, which has become increasingly popular in recent years. New coverage on Jewish views of morality, including birth control, homosexuality, and environmental concerns. Revised recipes for traditional Jewish cooking, updated key vocabulary, and Yiddish phrases everyone should know. Jews have long spread out to the corners of the world, so there are significant Jewish communities on many continents. Judaism for Dummies offers a glimpse into the rituals, ideas, and terms that are woven into the history and everyday lives of Jewish people as near as our own neighborhoods and as far-reaching as across the world.

    Story
    "A good overview"
    What made the experience of listening to Judaism for Dummies, 2nd Edition the most enjoyable?

    There was little that I didn't know already, but then again I have been doing a lot of research into Judaism for the last four years. It was pretty much in line with the "norm" out there. The author was very kind, too much for my taste, towards other religions that are heavily involved in idolatry.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for a great overall-style book on Judaism, then this is for you. If you are looking for information to help thwart the missionary onslaught towards Jews, then this isn't the one.
