It's not easy to sum up thousands of years of tradition in a few hours, but this recording does an admirable job. Norman Solomon begins by explaining Jewish identity in the past and present and describing the historical relationship between Judaism and Christianity. While he spends some time going over major Jewish thinkers, the most informative sections deal with Jewish celebrations and customs, including a warm and insightful chapter on keeping a Jewish home. David Horovitch not only handles the Hebrew words confidently, he also embodies Solomon's dry sense of humor. D.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
