Synopsis

Judaism by Stephen F. Brown, Martha Morrison

Tracing the history of the religion from its earliest origins, Judaism, Revised Edition discusses the various ways in which Judaism is practiced throughout the world today. This thoroughly updated and expanded edition offers a clear account of the history of Judaism, from its early beginnings in Canaan almost 4,000 years ago to the present day. Ideal for young researchers, Judaism carefully explains the basic tenets of the Jewish religious heritage, including the genesis of its rites of passage, its traditional places of worship, and the sacred use of the Hebrew language. The book also explores the specific beliefs, both similar and dissimilar, of Orthodox Judaism and Reformed Judaism, which includes Reform Judaism, Conservative Judaism, and Reconstructionist Judaism, as well as the common heritage that all forms of Judaism share.
