Reviews

'Judaism by Dan Cohn-Sherbok is the most comprehensive introduction to Judaism available to American
undergraduates. The concise chapters of this book provide excellent background information on Jewish
history, culture, and religion. As a teacher, I can build upon this information when we pursue critical
issues in specialized classes in Jewish Studies. My undergraduate students at this liberal arts college
praise the encyclopedic character of the book as well as the maps and text samples. Many of my
students keep this book as a future reference work.
