Description

Are you Jewish, but curious about Jewish life in different Jewish groups and Jewish movements around America? Or maybe you aren't Jewish, but you simply want to know what it's like to be a Jew? Maybe you just want to know the truth behind the stereotypes, especially regarding Orthodox Judaism and Hasidic Jews. Have you ever wondered what exactly the Talmud is and why it's so important to Judaism? And, Jewish or not, do you want to know whether the Jewish tidbit you read in a novel or saw in a movie is true? Are you writing a screenplay or novel that includes a Jewish character and you want to know whether you can maintain authenticity while moving away from the same old tired stereotypes? This short little book can answer these questions and more! Chapter 1: Some Basic Information about Judaism Chapter 2: Different Groups of Jews - A Brief History Chapter 3: Jews by the Numbers Chapter 4: Slices of Jewish Life Chapter 5: Stereotype Busters Chapter 6: Jews and Non-Jews Chapter 7: Orthodox Jews Discover the biggest misconception about Orthodox Judaism and Hasidic Jews, Jewish attitudes toward themselves and others, antisemitism, the differences between different Jewish movements (including some history of the Reform Movement, the Conservative Movement, and Orthodox Judaism - including Hasidism), some basics of Hebrew pronunciation, and much more.show more
