Note: 
Judaism is written as a chapter book with colorful, glossy pages. A Table of Contents, Timeline, Glossary, and Further Reference page engage the reader who has not yet studied Judaism. The chapters do not always follow chronological or historical events; however, most of their content is easily understood. The opening chapter, “Flights to Freedom,” tells the story of the Ethiopian Jews who were flown to Israel in 1991. In the last chapter titled “Judaism Today,” the author lumps together many different topics, such as all Jewish denominations, U.S. Jews’ relationship to Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict, intermarriage, and the Jewish calendar. Part of the World Religions Series and adequate as an introduction.
