Have you ever heard of Two-Gun Cohen? Did you know that the artist Man Ray was Jewish? And what happened to Elisha ben Abuya that the other Talmudic sages began to refer to him as "Acher," which means "Other"? Jewish Treats: 99 Fascinating Jewish Personalities is an enlightening and enjoyable anthology of mini-essays on Jews from all walks of life. From the familiar figures of the Bible to little-known war heroes and even modern day novelists, these biographies have been culled from the popular Jewish Treats blog that presents "juicy bits of Judaism, daily." There have been books written on the history of the Jews and the impact of Jews on history, and even the impact of history on the Jews...but Jewish Treats: 99 Fascinating Jewish Personalities is a simple collection of essays on interesting Jews, some who changed the course of the world, some who gained renown only in their own time and a few who might have been forgotten if not for others' love of trivia.
