Scholars throughout Jewish history have proposed numerous formulations of Judaism's core tenets, all of which have met with criticism. The following is a basic, structured list of the central works of Jewish practice and thought. Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) and Rabbinic literature. The most popular formulation is Maimonides' thirteen principles of faith, developed in the 12th century. According to Maimonides, any Jew who rejects even one of these principles would be considered an apostate and a heretic  .

I have read numerous books intending to be an "introduction" to Judaism. Some I started then never finished ... or they took months of me reading, highlighting, then re-reading, etc. Not this book --- I thoroughly enjoyed reading it cover to cover. This book, along with "Gateway to Judaism" are at the top of my favorites list. It provides an at-a-glance overview of the holiday calendar, in addition to more detailed descriptions of each. It describes why Shabbat is so special and enjoyable. It is written so simply yet meaningfully, making it an easy quick read. I highly recommend it to anyone, regardless if they are Jewish, interested in converting, or just wanting to understand Judaism. If you read this book thoroughly, you will have a very good understanding, even though there is SO much to learn.

Wow - this is among the best non-fiction books I've ever read. It's written in conversational English instead of the common lofty esoteric literature of theologians - and it's fascinating. The examples and analogies are on the point and easy to understand. It's everything the Christians don't want their following to know about Judaism.

This is a very tough philosophical read, if you are not analytical, or philosophical it may be a bit too deep for you, amidst all it was a great read and a must read for all... for Jewish and non-Jewish alike!
