An excellent introduction,

This review is from: To be a Jew: Guide to Jewish Observance in Contemporary Life (Paperback)
Although this book is primarily Askenazi it is a comprehensive but manageable introduction to Jewish living. I've used this book with people who wish to return to Judaism and they have found it invaluble. Along with 'How to Pray as a Jew' by Rabbi Donin this has to be a standard text for the modern Jewish home where there is little possible access to classical texts. This book is also useful in the class room when answering questions about Judaism before going onto further research. Certainly teachers in Lincolnshire, England, have found this book useful when teaching GCSE and A level Judaism.
