When What We Know about Jewish Education was first published in 1992, Stuart Kelman recognized that knowledge and understanding would greatly enhance the ability of professionals and lay leaders to address the many challenges facing Jewish education. With increased innovation, the entry of new funders, and the connection between Jewish education and the quality of Jewish life, research and evaluation have become, over the last two decades, an integral part of decision making, planning, programming, and funding.

Jewish Studies classrooms are legendary for their lack of discipline; Jewish schools of all formats are hard-pressed to find qualified teachers; and the quality of Jewish Studies curricula is lacking. Practical Pedagogy for the Jewish Classroom encourages Jewish professionals in education to review their own practices in these areas and challenges them to re-imagine and develop their own unique approach to teaching Jewish Studies so that they can articulate and implement their own visions of Jewish education.

This collection brings together discussions of the way in which Muslim and Jewish beliefs and practices are represented in modern literary texts of poetry, fiction and drama. The chapters collected here consider elements of the expression of Judaism and Islam in modern literature. Key topics such as religious ideas and teachings, aspects of mysticism, the tenets of religion, uses made of sacred texts, religion and popular culture and reflections of religious controversies are covered. While there is an embodied comparative element to the chapters, the essays are not confined by comparisons and cover a wide range of the literary expression of religious issues.

Grab a highlighter and prepare your heart for The Great Jewish Mystery. The time has come to expose friends, family, and particularly our children to this mystery, which will eventually impact the world. The Middle East receives global coverage daily, yet this mysterious topic is never discussed. Worldwide conspiracies now exist to deny efforts that will uncover this mystery. Therefore, the three major religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—can no longer sit on the sidelines and avoid tough questions from this book. In addition, this Jewish mystery briefly combats the fallacies of The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Brown clearly attacked what the Jews consider sacred and made erroneous claims about the Dead Sea Scrolls. This book seeks to encourage millions not to be intimidated by man-made traditions or spiritual challenges. Finally, this book is a phenomenal quick reference guide to the best-kept Middle East secret. Come, let us reason together!

Part biography, part medical history, and part study of Jewish life in turn-of-the-century America, Jeanne Abrams's book tells the story of Dr. Charles David Spivak - a Jewish immigrant from Russia who became one of the leaders of the American Tuberculosis Movement. Born in Russia in 1861, Spivak immigrated to the United States in 1882 and received his medical degree from Philadelphia's Jefferson Medical College by 1890. In 1896, his wife's poor health brought them to Colorado. Determined to find a cure, Spivak became one of the most charismatic and well-known leaders in the American Tuberculosis Movement. His role as director of Denver's Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society sanatorium allowed his personal philosophies to strongly influence policies. His unique blend of Yiddishkeit, socialism, and secularism - along with his belief in treating the "whole" patient - became a model for integrating medical, social, and rehabilitation services that was copied across the country. Not only a national leader in the crusade against tuberculosis but also a luminary in the American Jewish community, Dr. Charles Spivak was a physician, humanitarian, writer, linguist, journalist, administrator, social worker, ethnic broker, and medical, public health, and social crusader. Abrams's biography will be a welcome addition to anyone interested in the history of medicine, Jewish life in America, or Colorado history.

The Jewish Study Bible, which comes in a protective slipcase, combines the entire Hebrew Bible--in the celebrated Jewish Publication Society TANAKH Translation--with explanatory notes, introductory materials, and essays by leading biblical scholars on virtually every aspect of the text, the world in which it was written, its interpretation, and its role in Jewish life.

This second edition includes revised annotations for nearly the entire Bible, as well as forty new and updated essays on many of the issues in Jewish interpretation, Jewish worship in the biblical and post-biblical periods, and the influence of the Hebrew Bible in the ancient world.
