Best books of 2019 – The Jerusalem Post

| January 24, 2020

As time goes on, I find that my reading is narrowing to books on Israeli and Jewish matters, including Torah commentary; with fewer novels and less general history and politics. There is only so much territory one can cover!Last January I published a list of new (2018) Jewish/Israeli books that I was reading, from an eclectic group of authors like Einat Wilf, Gil Troy, Yossi Klein Halevi, Yoram Hazony, Aviad Hacohen, Yael Ziegler, Kira Sirote and rabbis Uriel Eitam, Binyamin Tabory and Eitam Henkin.Here are my recommended 2019 books.#IsraeliJudaism: Portrait of a Cultural Revolution, by Shmuel Rosner and Camil Fuchs (JPPI).
