  Jews are known as the "People of the Book," an appropriate title. After the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE and the subsequent exile, sacrifices became impossible and Jewish religious life turned to study of the scriptures and prayer in the synagogue. Study of Torah and other Jewish texts has been central to religious life ever since. Jewish History is a study of the history of descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob from the creation of Adam to events recorded in Nehemiah following the Jews’ return from Babylonian captivity and the ministry of the prophet Malachi.

The Jewish Study Bible 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.   BOOK RIOT | Book Recommendations and Reviews.

  Welcome back to our series on the libraries of great men. The eminent men of history were often voracious readers and their own philosophy represents a distillation of all the great works they fed into their minds. This series seeks to trace the stream of their thinking back to the source. In Jewish culture, food brings the whole family together, especially chicken soup! In this lovely picture-book, Sophie's grandmothers are both from different cultures, but both make great chicken.
