In this fascinating book, noted author Rabbi Berel Wein discusses the origins and values behind Jewish traditions, dispels myths and succinctly explains contemporary Judaism with forthright candor. You can use this book as a reliable, fact-filled reference, or read it in sequence to catch a glimpse into the vibrant mind of a highly knowledgeable Jew.

Drawing upon traditional sources and Jewish history, Rabbi Wein answers practical questions meaningful to todays Jew. For example: Why is Kaddish said after the death of a loved one? What is the family Passover Seder meant to accomplish?

What anti-Semitic myth has been at the root of centuries of persecution and is still alive today? What does the Torah say about ecology, animal rights and being Jewish in a non-Jewish world? An enriching reading experience, Living Jewish enables every reader to find deeper meaning in Jewish traditions and reconnect with the ancient values that have found new expression in the modern era. Utilizing his broad experiences as an Orthodox rabbi, a yeshivah dean, a producer of video documentaries, a renowned public speaker and Jerusalem Post columnist, Rabbi Wein deftly conveys the richness of Jewish thought and tradition to diverse audiences and readers.

He is the author of six popular works on Jewish history and thought, most recently Faith & Fate: The Story of the Jewish People in the Twentieth Century. His wry, informative speaking style has been captured on more than forty audiotape sets, the most popular of which is The Crash Course in Jewish History.
