About the Book

This compact yet comprehensive volume analyzes the many cults and sects that have arisen from Judaism. In twenty-three chapters, Rabbi Kaufman surveys the long continuum of Jewish history, with proper emphasis upon the more contemporary denominations, movements, and philosophies. This title, originally published in 1967, is available on-demand only.

“Rabbi Kaufman not only knows his material, but also how to transfer his knowledge to the printed page. He is one of the not-too-many who really know how to write.”
--In Jewish Bookland
