Reading Jewish Religious Texts introduces students to a range of significant post-biblical Jewish writing. It covers diverse genres such as prayer and liturgical poetry, biblical interpretation, religious law, philosophy, mysticism and works of ethical instruction. Each text is newly translated into English and accompanied by a detailed explanation to help clarify the concepts and arguments. The commentary also situates the work within its broader historical and ideological context, giving readers an enhanced appreciation of its place in the Jewish religious experience. This volume includes a comprehensive timeline, glossary and bibliography.

"Eliezer Segal seamlessly combines almost 3000 years of Jewish religious texts from the Bible to 19th century CE Hasidism in one volume with new and meaningful English translations and explanations. This is suitable for undergraduates and graduate students alike and could serve as the main textbook for a range of courses in Jewish and biblical studies."

- Richard A. Freund, Director of The Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies, University of Hartford, USA
