The People and the Books

18 Classics of Jewish Literature

Adam Kirsch

This exploration of Jewish literature looks beyond the scriptures to understand how various writers have reflected the central questions and themes of Jewish culture, from religious commentaries to history, biography and fiction. The selections include The Jewish War by Roman historian Josephus, Spinoza’s heretical Theological-Political Treatise and the Tevye the Dairyman stories by Sholem Aleichem.
