Jews have long embraced their identity as a ‘people of the book’, but outside the Bible, much Jewish writing remains unknown. This wide-ranging survey examines 18 classic texts, from Deuteronomy to the 20th century. From the writings of Moses Maimonides, Baruch Spinoza and his contemporary, the 17th-century businesswoman Glückel of Hamelin, the Zionist Theodore Herzl and others, it draws out the enduring themes of Jewish literature: the nature of God, the Promised Land, and the challenges of diaspora life.
