Publisher's Summary

Norman Solomon's succinct audiobook is an ideal introduction to Judaism as a religion and way of life. In addition to surveying the nature and development of Judaism, this Very Short Introduction outlines the basics of practical Judaism - its festivals, prayers, customs, and various sects. Modern concerns and debates of the Jewish people are also addressed, such as the impact of the Holocaust, the establishment of the State of Israel, the status of women, and medical and commercial ethics.

generally good structure and topic choice. i had a hard time following some sections mostly due to unfamiliarity with hebrew terms used

Interesting... more on the history of Judaism...

Interesting read... Too much historical content and less content on the belief within Judaism and why.
