The Encyclopedia of Judaism provides a full and reliable account of Judaism, beginning in ancient Israelite times and extending to our own day. About Judaism, the religion, its diverse history, literature, beliefs past and present, observances and practices, and place in the context of society and culture, this is what we know. All principal topics required for the systematic description of Judaism as a religion the world view, way of life, theory of the social entity constituted by the faithful are addressed here. A full and detailed index provides ready-reference for facts, and the systematic articles set forth highly readable accounts of the entire range of Judaic systems of belief and behavior put forth over time and in our own time. It is written for people from all backgrounds, scholars and general readers alike. More than 100 topics are covered in the first three volumes of the Encyclopedia.

"Outstanding Reference Source 2001."--American Library Association

"Outstanding Academic Title for 2000."--Choice

"These volumes belong in all librairies."--Jewish Post and Opinion

"Alan J. Avery Peck is a fine co-editor, responsible for useful and sometimes ground-breaking authority. Avery Peck gives us the state of scholarship and useful bibliographies at the end of his many fine articles. I also admire Mendes-Flohr on modern philosophies and theologies of Judaism, Hoffman on Liturgy, Salkin on New Age Judaism, Wolfson on Jewish Mysticism, and Ravitsky on Zionism and Judaism. ... Neusner himself offers a brilliant, highly original treatment of the Conservative Judaism in which he was trained. ... The illustrations are breathtaking and important."--Review of Biblical Literature
