Why did generations of people grow up thinking that Jews really had
horns? Did Eve really eat an apple, and if not, why does everyone think
she did? Did Noah’s ark really exist? Did Moses really write the Torah?
This fascinating book explores these and many other assumptions about
Jews and Judaism. Rabbi Sonsino uses history, archeology, and other
scholarship to debunk familiar myths, showing how and why they
developed over time. This book is for everyone who wants to know more
about Judaism and get the real story behind the myth.
In a video interview with URJ Press Editor-in-Chief Michael Goldberg, Rabbi Rifat Sonsino discusses the "foundational myths" of Judaism that we all know about from the Bible, and how his book identifies these myths, places them in a historical context, and helps us to understand the Jewish values that we can today derive from them.
