Great books on Jewish practices and beliefs.
on October 26, 2016
This is a very, very good set of books that explain a lot about Jewish practices and beliefs beyond just reading scripture. My marriage is mixed: I am a Christian and my wife is Jewish. I read these books in a short time and found myself explaining some of the traditions to my wife!. Rabbi Kolatch explains the roots of the tradition (Torah, Tanakh, or Talmud). He is an Orthodox Rabbi, and the text does lean that way. Given that, he does go over how Conservative and Reformed Judaism differ without casting aspersions on their differences. Highly recommended for persons of the Jewish faith, or other Abrahamic religions trying to understand Jewish traditions.
