Product Description


This is a very essential and long-awaited work about an important ancient part of the Jewish world little-known by many. A superbly organized book. -- William M. Brinner This timely volume addresses an important topic that has recently risen to the fore amidst general ignorance: the lives of the Jews of Muslim lands during the last 200 years... This is a book that should be a part of everyone's personal library. Sephardim Today Perhaps no single volume encompasses the history of Jews in the Muslim world with quite the comprehensive sweep and topical richness as The Jews of the Middle East and North Africa in Modern Times. -- Michael Skakun The Jewish Press Well researched and clearly written, the book is a major contribution to the field, and appropriate for academic, public and center libraries as well as for individuals.

Good reference, should be in every Jewish library 6 Nov. 2005
By Ehav Eliyahu Ever - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a gift from a friend and I have enjoyed going through it for specific information. It opens some of the specific dynamics of various Jewish communities in the Middle East and North Africa. I like the way the book is structured to cover the same type of issues for each community give you an interesting canvas of sociatal issues. There are sections not only about the religious environment of each community, but also the political and population statics.

It is best to use this book as a reference guide, because it is not a noval of a book that some people will be able to read from front to back in one sitting. I would suggest that this is a book I feel that every Yeshiva and Jewish educational institution should have. Especially with the lack of informaiton on Mizrakhi and Maghrebi communities. I truly enjoy having this book as a part of my library.
