Description: With chapters written by leading scholars specifically for this volume, Back to the Sources is the first comprehensive guide to the Jewish religious treasures: the Bible, the Talmud, the midrashic literature, the commentaries, the legal codes, the mystical texts of the Kabbalah and of Chassidism, the philosophical works and the prayerbook. It has been designed for the contemporary reader who wishes to know what these books are and, most important, how to read them.
