The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia, 7th edition, is an ideal handbook for the student of Judaism. Under the editorial hand of Geoffrey Wigoder in Jerusalem it has been compiled with contributions from many hundreds of Jewish scholars from throughout the Jewish world. In a single, very portable volume, it covers everything from mysticism to contemporary Jewish authors, from cookery to historical figures. It is an enormous achievement and an invaluable aide to the researcher and the casual reader. The ample illustrations are an added bonus.

Listed in A-Z encyclopedia format, this book has thousands of entries that collectively define and describe Judaism, past and present. Well written, concise, balances maximizing its informative tone with staying readable. Not over the average person's head at all. A very good reference volume. Worth owning by anyone.

I enjoy reading books that I know or feel that I may not agree with; however, this book is an Encyclopedia and a reference book is skewed by the writers for purposes unknown. I tire myself looking at books that do not give correct answers. If I do not understand a word that I am reading, I look up the answer. I once took me four days to find that correct meaning to a word that I was looking for. I have found that for myself staying away from new, revised, and such other names of books take me farther away from the answers I am looking for. This book for me is easy to read, answers are easy to find, but to liberal and often off subject. I would not recommend this encyclopedia for serious minded biblical scholars.
