From the hosts of Tablet magazine’s wild­ly pop­u­lar Unortho­dox pod­cast, The Newish Jew­ish Ency­clo­pe­dia is an edi­fy­ing, enter­tain­ing, and thor­ough­ly mod­ern intro­duc­tion to Judaism. The book is an alpha­bet­i­cal ency­clo­pe­dia of short entries — some pro­fane, some pro­found, and some both — heavy on the graph­ics and, like con­tem­po­rary Judaism itself, fea­tur­ing a panoply of diver­gent voic­es, all amus­ing and well-informed and none in per­fect agreement. By weav­ing togeth­er the essen­tial and the eso­teric, the snarky, and the earnest, the Jew­ish and the Jew-ish, this book hon­ors its title, offer­ing a tru­ly unortho­dox approach to Judaism, and allow­ing each read­er to find his or her point of con­nec­tion with the cul­ture, the tra­di­tion, and the religion.
