Item Description...
From the Torah to the High Holy Days, this neophyte tour of an ancient but living religion covers all the basic practices and beliefs of modern Judaism as it is currently practiced around the world.

Publishers Description
From the teachings of the Torah to the meaning of the holidays, this work offers an introduction to Judaism. It offers an account of Judaic history from the time of the Pharaohs through painful events like the Holocaust and triumphant ones like the creation of modern-day Israel. Among the topics included are features on the concerns facing Judaism - the role of women within the religion, gay rabbis, interfaith marriages and genetic engineering. Gazing into a crystal ball, the book asks whether the present followers of Judaism can preserve the religion. Other chapters ask whether Israel makes it harder or easier for Judaism to survive while other debates centre around the differences between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.

Great Starter Book  Jul 12, 2008
The book is concise, covers a wide range of topics and is entertaining while describing a complicated religion. An enjoyable read, very informative and filled with fascinating facts, thoughts, history and possible future of Judaism. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to start learning about Judaism and the fascinating culture, traditions and religions.
If only have one book on Judiasm, make it this one!  Jun 24, 2008
This book is in no form an "Idiot's" guide. Rabbi Benjamin Blech does an absolute brilliant job articulating some of the most difficult concepts in Jewish thought and Judaism today. Based on his book "Understaing Judaism" published by Jason Aronson, Blech touches on almost every aspect of Jewish life and for the right amount of time. Not too little, yet not too boring.

After reading this book I realized that after years of study, I am still an "idiot".
Excellent book, Bad title   Jan 20, 2008
They need to remove the "Complete Idiot's Guide" from the title. I feel that this cheapens or insults the wonderful message and body of work inside this marvelous book. G-d's message and word should not be down played as this title implies.

With that said the Rabbi's message is very articulate and insightful. He is able to blend ancient teachings with modern analogies wonderfully. I highly recommend this book!!
Great Book!  Apr 29, 2007
This book provides an accurate basic account of the Jewish faith for all who are interested. It also adds amusing references to pop culture and real-life sitations.
Great Overview  Apr 2, 2007
This is a great book for a non Jew to get an overall appreciation for the beliefs, practices and customs of the Jewish religion. I am a Christian who wanted to get a better understanding and appreciation for Judaism. In Jan. 2007 I spent two weeks in the Holy Land and when I came back I wanted to get a fuller appreciation for Judaism. This book gave me that.
