The Woman Who Laughed at God
The Untold History of the Jewish PeopleBook - 2001
"In The Woman Who Laughed at God, author Jonathan Kirsch takes us on a journey through Jewish history, and offers fresh and surprising answers to the provocative question "Who is a Jew?" Today, the Jewish world is divided by differences in faith and practice - but Kirsch's illuminating work reveals that Judaism has never been a strict and narrow orthodoxy. For every accepted tradition in Jewish faith there are countertraditions rooted in biblical antiquity. Diversity, Kirsch shows, is a core value of Judaism."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
