Register in advance. The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia by Mark Oppenheimer, Stephanie Butnick & Liel Leiboitz 

Named one of Library Journal’s Best Religion & Spirituality Books of 2019, The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia, writ­ten by the hosts of the pop­u­lar pod­cast “Unortho­dox” from Tablet Mag­a­zine, is an unorthodox guide to everything Jewish. Deeply knowing, highly entertaining, and just a little bit irreverent, this unputdownable encyclopedia of all things Jewish and Jew-ish covers culture, religion, history, habits, language, and more. Readers will refresh their knowledge of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, the artistry of Barbra Streisand, the significance of the Oslo Accords, the meaning of words like balaboosta,balagan, bashert, and bageling. Understand all the major and minor holidays while discovering the secret of happiness (see “Latkes”).
