Sefer Circle: Jews and Words by Amos Oz and Fania Oz-Salzberger

The death of Israeli novelist and peace activist Amos Oz in December 2018 also meant the loss of an articulate defender of secular Jewish culture and identity. This exploration, co-written with his daughter, historian Fania Oz-Salzberger, journeys through Jewish history to explore the relationship of Jews and words through names, arguments, texts and more. 

"Ingenious and thrilling, Jews and Words manages to cram more than 5,000 years of prayers, songs, stories, arguments, praises, curses and jokes into the suitcase of a thin, page-turning work of . . . what? History? Anthropology? Literary criticism? Theology? All of these and more. It's a wonderful book."—Jonathan Safran Foer
