Summary

"It is a new departure for Jewish studies and presents the first large-scale attempt to develop a set of themes on the anthropology of Judaism. The approaches are of a high caliber and of considerable interest. The topic is important for itself, but it is also a growing area of concern in anthropology and religion studies." -- Laurence D. Loeb, University of Utah

"The material is extremely interesting. The essays are clearly written and work together with a unified theme beyond the fact that they all deal with Jews." -- Jack Kugelmass, Sarah Lawrence College

Judaism Viewed from Within and from Without presents three themes. The first applies anthropological analyses to classic textual material in Judaism, the second presents studies of different expressions of Jewish life in America, while the third portrays varieties of Judaism among different cultural groups in contemporary Israel.

Harvey E. Goldberg is Assistant Professor and Chairman in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
