List Price: 17.99*
* Individual store prices may vary.


The classic and essential guide for the educated, skeptical, and searching Jew, or for the non-Jew who wants to understand the meaning of Judaism.

If you have ever wondered what being born Jewish should mean to you; if you want to find out more about the nature of Judaism, or explain it to a friend; if you are thinking about how Judaism can connect with the rest of your life—this is the first book you should own. It poses, and thoughtfully addresses, questions like these:

· Can one doubt God’s existence and still be a good Jew?

· Why do we need organized religion?

· Why shouldn’t I intermarry?

· What is the reason for dietary laws?

· How do I start practicing Judaism?

Concisely and engagingly, authors Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin present Judaism as the rational, moral alternative for contemporary man or woman.
