KIRKUS REVIEW

This book, written by a Rabbi, is of primary value to young readers who are grappling with the question of their identity as Jews or as Christians living in a Christian-Judaic society. The sociological position of the Jew is examined both historically and in terms of the present, famous Jews are scrutinized in terms of their attitudes toward Judaism, and the state of modern Judaism is carefully analyzed. A section dealing with Israel and the Diaspora and certain problems posed by the establishment of the Jewish state conclude this simply written, concise, and illuminating book.
