Description:

What does the Torah say that makes it relevant to today?

  • How can we understand the mitzvos?
  • Why should I believe?
  • Why be Jewish?
  • What does a Jew have to do?
  • Is science an enemy of Judaism?

JEP -- the famous Jewish Education Program – has introduced thousands of young people to the exciting adventure of Torah Judaism. In addition to trips, Shabbatons, and rousing song and dance, it has presented the basics of Jewish history and belief in an attractive, compelling manner. This captivating book is the essence of the best of JEP. It distills the faith and experience of the Torah nation in a manner that makes it an excellent primer for adolescents and adults.

This book is filled with good question and better answers. Compiled by the leader of JEP, Rabbi Mordechai Katz, it contains the best teaching of Rabbi Katz and his colleagues, filtered though the wisdom of their spiritual leaders and relived by the reaction of tens of thousands of young people over many years.

Best of all, it’s a book that’s a pleasure to read, packed with stories and ideas. As an introduction to Judaism, Understanding Judaism is a great starting point. But it’s not just for beginners. The cast majority of yeshivah-trained observant Jews will find it filled with new information and approaches. And for anyone in a setting where he or she must answer questions about Judaism, it will be an invaluable aid.

Long awaited and much needed, this book is the answer to many a prayer.
