Question 20.1:
I'd like to learn more? Do you have any books to recommend?


Funny thing you should ask. I just happen to have a reading list for you.

Seriously, there are quite a lot of excellent Jewish books. We have attempted to summarize these in the S.C.J. Reading Lists ( These lists include information on general Judaism, traditional Judaism, Jewish mysticism, Reform/Progressive Judaism, Conservative Judaism, Reconstructionist Judaism, Humanistic Judaism, Chassidism, Antisemitism, Zionism, Intermarriage and Conversion, and Childrens Books.
