The Jewish Body

by Melvin Konner (Schocken)


Referring often to Jewish literature, history and culture, this succinctly written and imaginative analysis examines the inter-connections between the Jewish view of the physical human body, the Jewish conception of God, Jewish peoplehood, and the reality of a national Jewish homeland.

Stylistically rich, this book rewards close reading because there is content in every sentence.
