From the hosts of

Tablet magazine's wildly popular

Unorthodox podcast,

The New Jewish Encyclopedia is an edifying, entertaining, and thoroughly modern introduction to Judaism. The book is an alphabetical encyclopedia of short entries--some profane, some profound, and some both--heavy on the graphics and, like contemporary Judaism itself, featuring a panoply of divergent voices, all amusing and well-informed and none in perfect agreement.

By weaving together the essential and the esoteric, the snarky, and the earnest, the Jewish and the Jew-ish, this book honors its title, offering a truly unorthodox approach to Judaism,and allowing each reader to find his or her point of connection with the culture, the tradition, and the religion.

Makes a great gift!
