  The Torah is written in Hebrew, the oldest of Jewish languages. It is also known as Torat Moshe, the Law of Moses. The Torah is the first section or first five books of the Jewish bible. An outstanding Conservative Rabbi (Rochester, N.Y.) has added an exceedingly interesting and helpful study on the spiritual history of the Jewish people, to Prentice-Hall's ""Way of Life"" series. This is more than a history. It is a clear, warm, illuminating study of the struggle, the rise, the fall, the development and the growth of Judaism.

The book is more of a pamphlet. It's very short only 86 pages but it does cover all the major topics in about a paragraph to a page each. It goes over the hallmarks of Reform Judaism such as its inclusion of gay couples and some of its differences with Orthdox and Jewish way of life book denominations/5(3).

The Way of Life is a new complete translation of the text, with an extensive Messianic Jewish verse-by-verse commentary. It exposes a historic and authentic Messianic Jewish faith expression for Gentiles that accepted the yoke of the Messiah.

Diamont's "Living a Jewish Life" is a readable, welcoming, inclusive introduction to liberal Jewish living. This book is aimed at adult readers seeking to move their lives in a Jewish direction - as Diamont puts it, to make more "Jewish choices."

Called enriching and profoundly moving by Elie Wiesel, The Jewish Way is a comprehensive and inspiring presentation of Judaism as revealed through its holy days. In thoughtful and engaging prose, Rabbi Irving Greenberg explains and interprets the origin, background, interconnections, ceremonial rituals, and religious significance of all the Jewish holidays, including/5.

In an attempt to explain Jews, their way of life, and their beliefs, especially to non-Jews, Brichto, a popular British rabbi (born in America) begins by examining some stereotypes about Jews (e.g., Jews have always been persecuted, Jews stick together, Jews are all related, all Jews are rich, Jews.

A very readable book on Jewish life from the author of “When Bad Things Happen to Good People.” Nothing profound - simple and uplifting. All anti-semites and Jew haters should read this book to understand that Judaism is a kind way of celebrating life and making it happen, and not a dogmatic bunch of crapola!/5(90).

According to the Jewish tradition, the art of living is the art of being holy. The Book of Leviticus records the holy saying thus: ‘Be holy, as I, the Unconditioned One, am holy'.

God considers those things, weighs the good against the bad, and then, as the prayers declare, decides “who shall live and who shall die.” In order to make sense out of the conundrum of life and death, many Jews of old came to believe that death is a punishment for our sins.

Instructive for the study of the development of Jewish mysticism is the Book of Jubilees written around the time of King John Hyrcanus.

It refers to mysterious writings of Jared, Cain, and Noah, and presents Abraham as the renewer, and Levi as the permanent guardian, of these ancient writings. Hadot taught all of us, or at least reminded us, that for ancients philosophy was a way of life, a way for self-perfection and eternity and not an abstract knowledge.

To understand why the monotheists Plato, Aristotle, and Zeno the Stoic were important for Maimonides or for that matter any medieval Jewish thinker, then one should read Hadot.
