      Popular from the start, it grew rapidly: Today, the Missouri program involves roughly Jewish teens and reaches 4, non-Jewish teens each year, Picker Neiss : Hannah Natanson. Judaism began nearly 4, years ago in a place called the Middle East. This is a large area on the border of Asia, Africa and Europe. Jews believe that there is only one God. They believe they.

    The book had a great influence on the development of Jewish intellectual traditions. By the modern period, ideological syncretism became the norm for Jewish laity and scholars. Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in cosmopolitan centers such as Amsterdam and Venice, many Jews began to participate in the life of the majority culture. The book begins with the assertion that “American Judaism is not in decline, but is being transformed” (2). The evidence he provides throughout the text led me to conclude that this transformation is not, for the most part, one that Wertheimer values. The book is divided into three sections.
