With wit, humor and compassion, he opens the ancient the religion for all. He gives us his very personal take with broad understanding and respect for those who opinions and practices differ from his.
A treasure! The book, that is. And most of all, Mr. Wouk!
Shanah tovah, R. Wouk! A good, sweet year to all!
fifty years ago, as a new college freshman , I had never met a Jew.
This book afforded me the way I first came to know something of
of this set of new people and, friends with some of them. I bought
this, again, for my daughter. Having it at hand, I have just re-read
it. Thank you Herman Wouk. The zionism may be dated, so much
has happened since then. But don't avoid or ignore that. It too is
a critical part of our history and, most certainly, helped shape present
conditions and events in our world.
The best chapters,in my opinion, are related to the experiences related to the secular Jewish people when they got involved in the Jewish religious rituals at the synagogue or at home during childhood, "one feels like he is telling ones own experiences when he was a Jewish kid, so unexplained and uneasy situations at that time become hilarious
Generally speaking, Wouk, who is observant, tried to be very open avoiding dogma and intended to convey to the Jewish reader the precious value of his 4000 years heritage and a way to learn how to feel proud about it.
Wouk did not forget the non-Jewish reader either, he wrote this book with simple concepts and language so anyone interested about Judaism can get a good basic introduction through these pages
