A comprehensive reference encompassing the history of Judaism.

Jewish people have settled around the world, adapted to their host nations, and produced cultural variances within Judaism. In doing so, they have experienced both prosperity and tragedy.

In about 800 A-to-Z entries, Encyclopedia of Judaism explores a religion that has a 2,000-year recorded history and has been a part of the culture of almost every country and society around the globe. Encapsulating all things Jewish—language, laws, literature, arts, theology, ritual, land, culture, and personalities—this authoritative volume offers readers access to Judaism from both a historical and contemporary perspective.

A comprehensive introduction, further readings, cross-references, and a chronology, in addition to photographs, a general bibliography, and a thorough index make Encyclopedia of Judaism an easy-to-use and essential reference for both researchers and general readers.

Entries include:
  • Ancient synagogues
  • Arab-Israeli conflict
  • Bar/bat mitzvah
  • Camp David
  • Albert Einstein
  • Ellis Island
  • Anne Frank
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg
  • Guggenheim family
  • Hasidism
  • Holocaust
  • Homosexuality
  • Kibbutz
  • Knesset
  • Golda Meir

  • Rome

  • Tel Aviv
  • United Nations
  • Yeshiva

  • and more.
