30 questions and answers regarding this controversial and contentious issues

Rabbi Yaakov Imanuel Shochet - a renowned scholar and a popular lecturer, expert in the field of Jewish philosophy, Kabbalah and Hasidism. For many years - a rabbi in Toronto (Canada). Professor of Philosophy at Humber College and a professor of Jewish law and philosophy at Maimonides College (Toronto). Author of more than thirty books and dozens of articles.

The problem of "Who is a Jew?" - One of the hottest in contemporary Jewish life, it arouses so much controversy, so much hatred, so much recrimination ... It threatens the Jewish people in such a split, what he did not know for their entire history.

Slander and abuse, lies and disinformation - all brought to bear to use the almost complete lack of awareness of the general public in these matters.

Therefore the main task of this book, to explain the fundamental, basic concepts of Judaism. It does not pretend to any new discoveries or any transfer hitherto unknown information on the subject. Its purpose - to bring clarity to this issue.
