Gafni, a professor of Jewish history at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, brings decades of classroom experience and scholarly knowledge to these 12 insightful lectures covering the sweep of Jewish history, thought, and religious practice. With a friendly delivery style that draws us along, Gafni guides listeners down a well-lighted path, from 1800 B.C. to modern times. Topics include Judaism's sacred literature, the rise of rabbinic Judaism, the fixing of the Jewish calendar, Jewish forms of prayer and worship, traditions marking various important stages in the lives of individual believers, and divisions within Judaism. Gafni's clear focus on the history and forms of Judaism provides a rich introduction to the fundamentals of this world religion. M.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
