- Ein Buch nicht nur für Juden, die mehr über ihren eigenen Glauben wissen wollen
- Eine kompetente, umfassende und unterhaltsame Einführung in den jüdischen Alltag
Im Judentum gibt es nicht nur »Milch und Honig«, die Wirklichkeit sieht anders aus: Es gibt Brüche und Widersprüche, häufig besteht eine Kluft zwischen Theorie und Wirklichkeit und oftmals existieren verschiedene »richtige« Formen. Doch jeder, der sich für das Judentum interessiert oder seine jüdischen Wurzeln besser verstehen möchte, sollte lernen, was once zu beachten und zu bedenken ist.
Walter Rothschild zeigt in seiner kritischen Einführung, wie das Judentum »funktioniert«. Darum stellt er die vielen kleinen Dinge des jüdisches Fest- und Alltages ins Zentrum. In tiefer Liebe zur culture des liberalen Judentums und im heiteren Wissen um die Unzulänglichkeiten des allzu Menschlichen ist sein Werk ein hilfreicher und unterhaltsamer Wegweiser in und durch das jüdische Leben
