"Judaism is one of the first recorded monotheistic religions and one of the oldest religious traditions still practiced today. Like many other cultural institutions, it has rarely remained static - instead, it continually investigates and questions itself, metamorphosing in relation to the world. Although its influences can be seen in both Christianity and Islam, many of its beliefs, traditions, and practices are unknown."--Publisher description

The A to Z of Judaism by Norman Solomon( )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a reference source for the study of Judaism. Judaism, the religion of the Jewish people, is one of the first recorded monotheistic religions, and as such is one of the oldest religious traditions still practiced today. While its influences can be seen in the religions of both Christianity and Islam, many of its beliefs, traditions, and practices are unknown. It investigates the complex intermingling of religion, devotion, lifestyle, and culture as it is found in diverse Jewish populations around the world and as it has evolved over the course of recent human history. Judaism, like many other cultural institutions, has rarely remained static, instead, continually investigating and questioning itself, metamorphosing in relation to the world. The author provides a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and numerous cross-referenced dictionary entries on important persons, writings, institutions, concepts, Hebrew words, philosophy, theology, and religious law

Ernest Bloch studies by Alexander Knapp( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2020 in English and French and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Bloch left his native Switzerland to settle in the United States in 1916. One of the great twentieth-century composers, he was influenced by a range of genres and styles - Jewish, American and Swiss - and his works reflect his lifelong struggle with his identity. Drawing on firsthand recollections of relatives and others who knew and worked with the composer, this collection is the most comprehensive study to date of Bloch's life, musical achievement and reception. Contributors present the latest research on Bloch's works and compositional practice, including studies of his Avodath Hakodesh (Sacred Service), violin pieces such as Nigun, the symphonic Schelomo, and the opera Macbeth. Setting the quality and significance of Bloch's output in its historical and cultural contexts, this book provides scholarly analyses as well as a full chronology, list of online resources, catalogue of published and unpublished works, and selected further reading
