Designed as a companion source reader to Neusner's WAY OF TORAH, 6th, 1997, Signposts presents writings that speak the language of Judaism. While pointing to the "inner life" of those who practice Judaism, the book engages dialogically with its companion text and follows its organization. In addition, signposts expand upon the treatment of many topics in WAY OF TORAH. These "signposts" enrich the description while pointing to the inner life of the faithful.
