Rabbi Telushkin has done a favor for us all with his learned book of Jewish history, rituals, ethics and life. Scholarly and fair, witty and fun to read, this is a reference for serious research and casual curiosity. Telushkin provides information, insight, flavor and vignette. Sure he's unstintingly erudite, but he's also an exceptional raconteur.

Synopsis
In this collection of 346 important facts about Judaism and its people, Telushkin ranges through all of Jewish history and literature to extract the enduring concepts one needs to know in order to be a well-informed, modern Jew.
