A multifaceted exploration of the teachings, observances, and history of Judaism.

What is Judaism?
What does it mean to be a Jew?
What is Judaism’s message to the world?

The Book of Jewish Knowledge offers 1200 answers in 1200 voices, presenting the story of Judaism via the variety of media that capture the Jewish experience: a Biblical account, a traditional Jewish practice, a painting by a Jewish artist, a Midrashic parable, a Talmudic discourse, a historical document, a poignant photograph, a gefilte fish recipe, a prayer from Psalms, a Scriptural aphorism, a Halachic responsum, a Kabbalistic diagram, a philosophical essay, a 12th-century travelogue. Collectively, these present the reader with an encyclopedic overview of Jewish history, an in-depth examination of four millennia of Jewish wisdom, and an intimate tour of Jewish traditions and observances.

This groundbreaking 496-page volume surveys the full scope of Jewish teaching and Jewish life, while also doing justice to the depth and beauty of Judaism. Whether this is your first book on Judaism, or if you are approaching it with a lifetime of learning and engagement, you are sure to gain a new appreciation of the range and grandeur of Jewish knowledge and experience.

Packaged in a sturdy slip case, printed on wide, glossy pages, and announcing itself in silver-gilt, The Book of Jewish Knowledge is a catchy, Chabad-produced reference text compiled “for the purpose of general edification.”
