Summary
Our elementary, middle, and high school teaching about Jews, Judaism, and Israel is driven by textbook misstatements about Jewish theology, social structure, and the history of Israel that comprise an unsavory picture of Jews and Israel. This book will be an extremely valuable reference tool for educators and members of the public interested in religion and the Middle East
