Review: "The Student's Encyclopedia of Judaism is one of the most important Jewish reference books available. Specially designed for students ages 12-18, the illustrated volume's articles cover a vast spectrum of topics. There are biographical entries on biblical figures, rabbis, and others whose thoughts and actions have influenced the development of Judaism. From traditions and ceremonies to foods and historical leaders, special attention is given particularly to contemporary issues and women's roles in Judaism. Also emphasized are the customs and folk traditions of Jewish outposts the world over."--BOOK JACKET.
