Product Description

If you have ever wondered what being born Jewish should mean to you; if you want to find out more about the nature of Judaism, or explain it to a friend; if you are thinking about how Judaism can connect with the rest of your life -- this is the first book you should own. It poses, and thoughtfully addresses, questions like these: Can one doubt God's existence and still be a good Jew? Why do we need organized religion? Why shouldn't I intermarry? What is the reason for dietary laws? How do I start practicing Judaism? The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism was written for the educated, skeptical, searching Jew, and for the non-Jew who wants to understand the meaning of Judaism. It has become a classic and very widely read introduction to the oldest living religion. Concisely and engagingly, authors Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin present Judaism as the rational, moral alternative for contemporary man.

Editorial Reviews

Herman Wouk The intelligent skeptic's guide to Judaism
Rabbi Wolfe Kelman (Conservative) Executive Vice President, the Rabbinical Assembly Compelling and persuasive. Its challenging ideas and direct and illuminating way permeate every page.
Rabbi Hayim Donin (Orthodox) author of To Be a Jew Stimulating...thought-provoking...excellent.
Rabbi Paul Kushner (Reform) in The Jewish Week I would suggest that on a single afternoon every rabbi, YMHA director, Jewish college instructor and anyone who has contact with young Jewish adults should set aside throe or four hours and read The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism. They could then spend the next few decades recommending and quoting hem this excellent book.
