Reviews

'Alon Goshen-Gottstein is an important, world class pioneer in developing Judaism's approach to other religions. In this book, he gives us deeper insight into Hinduism and Judaism. This book will help enable readers to connect to and learn from one of the oldest religions in human history. Such understanding is essential to the credibility and standing of Judaism as a world religion.' - Irving Greenberg
