This volume in the Studying World Religions series is an essential guide to the study of Jewish faith. Clearly structured to cover all the major areas of study, including historical foundations, scripture, worship, society, thought and ethics, this is the ideal study aid for those approaching Judaism for the first time.

Studying Judaism offers readers the chance to engage with a religious tradition as a diverse, living phenomenon. Its approach is "critical" in two major respects: its use of the dimensional approach to the study of religions as an interpretive framework, and its focus on matters perceived as problematic by insider and/or outsider commentators, such as gender, demography, geo-politics, the "museumisation" of Jewish cultures and its impact on religion and identity. This book is the perfect companion for the fledgling student of Judaism.
