Written in a clear and accessible style, this book does not preach about the proper understanding of Judaism. Rather, the author unfolds an engaging history of the Jewish people, allowing readers ample opportunity to identify facts that interest them and to draw their own connections. This will interest readers from various backgrounds, from bar/bat mitzvah age on up through adulthood.
