Since 1983, this book has been the standard teaching tool for beginning "Introduction to Judaism" classes in Reform synagogues and institutions throughout North America. This revised edition has been updated and expanded to include new material in each chapter. New articles, essays, liturgical writings, and text sources reflect recent developments in the political situation in Israel, the creation of alternative liturgies and life-cycle celebrations, and the Reform Movement's growing emphasis on sacred texts and spirituality.
