Judaism: All That Matters

Judaism: All That Matters

For a group of people so limited in number, the Jewish community has had a huge impact on both global events and local politics.

Reviews

His understanding of the contemporary Jewish work is often spot on, and he communicates this understanding in a clear and engaging way.
Jewish Quarterly
Kahn-Harris has produced a stimulating read that covers the very breadth of Judaism, no mean feat in such a compact work; he shies away from nothing, controversies, divisions and conflicts. There are so many introductions to Judaism, but for those who want an up-to-date, honest and informative volume then this is as good a place to start as anywhere.
Methodist Recorder
Judaism:All that Matters really does cover everything.
TES
This book provides a most helpful compendium of basics about Judaism and Jewishness.
Times Higher Education
The first impression is visually attractive and the layout of chapters, spiced with photographs and summary paragraphs, inviting to the reader. It has lighter elements and is well written, informative and thought-provoking and the excellent reading list whets the appetite for more in-depth study.
