1. Judaism Primer

Perhaps you've got some spiritual holes that need filling. Or maybe there are questions you've always had about Judaism but you just didn't feel like hanging around crowded book stores holding bright yellow manuals and looking like a Dummy. Or are you just starting out and need a quiet, friendly place where you can explore the basics of Judaism at your own speed and in your own company?

Throw another log on the fire (or do a quick backup on your work files) and settle down with... The Judaism Primer

2. God in a Nutshell

If all of Judaism could be summarized in one word, that word would be God.

When people around the world were worshiping thunder and wind, the Jews had but one word to say - God. When people were lionizing the Spartan and the gladiator, the Jews had but one word to say - God.

When life and history called on people to revel in their basest nature, to dehumanize themselves and others, the Jews had but one word to say - God. And when, in every age, people searched for meaning, sanctity, and spirituality, the Jews had but one word to say - God. Learn about God in a Nutshell!

3. Israel in a Nutshell

The story of Israel is an example of history in the extreme. On the one hand, it encompasses the story-the history-of much of the world. On the other hand, it is the story of a tiny people and its relationship to a minute bit of the world's real estate. These excerpts will tell the story of Israel in all its extremes.

It will tell the story of much of world history as it unfolded in a theater called Israel-often on a stage called Jerusalem-and it will tell the story of the Jewish people and its relationship to the land called Israel. Learn about Israel in a Nutshell!
