Preface to First Edition (EJ)

in Encyclopaedia of Judaism Online

(3,530 words)

The Encyclopaedia of Judaism provides a full and reliable account of the religion, Judaism, beginning in ancient Israelite times and extending to our own day. About Judaism, the religion, its diverse history, literature, beliefs past and present, observances, practices and world-view, and place in the context of society and culture, this is what we know. In context and proportion, here is how we think we know it. All principal topics required for the systematic description of any religion—[1] the world view, [2] way of life, [3] theory of the social entity constituted by the faithful—are addressed here. In all cases information is set forth in historical and systemic context. Therefore facts take on meaning and produce consequences.
