Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent guide to various concepts as understood by Judaism. The rule is the more you have of Rabbi Jacobs' explanation the better you understand the concept in question. Thus while the abridged version is helpful, the larger volume is more valuable.
