Book Comes Out Tomorrow

My book Judaism and Other Religions is to be officially released tomorrow March 2nd by Palgrave-Macmillan. But it is already available in the warehouse and available for purchase. The Amazon pre-publication price is only guaranteed until around 5PM tomorrow. Their computer may raise the price by 10%-15% later this week. So if you are buying from Amazon, then today (or tomorrow) is the day to do it.
On the other hand, you can pick up a copy directly from me for 10% off the current Amazon price. (Do not ask me to ship it to you.)
The official university book signing is Sunday March 21st. If you need review or desk copies, then contact Palgrave-Macmillan with your credentials.

  1. B’shaah Tovah! I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.

    I look forward to reading it! I’d like to ask a somewhat tangential question though, since you’re an academic. I’m able to read classical Jewish texts (I guess it goes without saying) but I really need to struggle to comprehend monder, academic hebrew works. How does one learn to do that? Can you direct me to a book, website, course? Thanks. B’hatlzlacha rabbah.

    • I do not know any course or website. One learns to read academic Hebrew the same way one gets to Carnegie Hall….practice. If you did an Ulpan and got up to level Vav, then you had some practice. In my time in YU, back when 2 years of Hebrew was required, they got us up to daled-heh, so we could start with heh-vav afterward. Sit down with 6-8 articles written by native Israelis and an Alcalay dictionary and practice. I was also quite fond of Joseph, Asher. Milon le-munaḥim be-madae ha-ḥevrah veha-ruaḥ. A Dictionary of Terms in Social Sciences and Humanities 1974 50 pages, which I bought at the Hebrew U Akademon.
