Dan Cohn-Sherbok received a Doctorate in Philosophy from Cambridge University and a Doctorate of Divinity from the Hebrew Union College. He is Professor of Judaism at the University of Wales, Lampeter, and is the author or editor of over 70 books including The Jewish Heritage, The Blackwell Dictionary of Judaica, Modern Judaism, Judaism and Other Faiths, and World Religions and Human Liberation.

In 1941, The United States is drawn into World War II. During that same year, Dr. Henry Einspruch publishes his classic book, The Yiddish New Testament, a breakthrough in evangelistic literature for Jewish people. Over the following decades, the publications of Lederer/Messianic Jewish Communications have been widely used to impact thousands of Jewish people with the Good News of Messiah. These books and tracts have been distributed in the Orthodox Jewish community, have been given out to Jews in the former Soviet Union, and have been used by Messianic congregations and Jewish outreaches all over the world. Messianic Jewish Publishers mission is two-pronged: Reaching out to Jewish people with the message of Messiah and teaching the non-Jewish spiritual family about their Jewish roots.

    Ein sehr gutes Buch zum Hebräisch Lernen und zum Wiederauffrischen vergessener Kenntnisse. Der Autor bietet eine sehr unkonventionelle Methode an, um den Leser an die hebräische Schriftsprache heranzuführen. Er verzichtet größtenteils auf das Benennen komplizierter Fachbegriffe und Regeln. Stattdessen stellt er Aufgaben und zeigt auch die Lösungen an: Learning by doing! A very good book for learning Hebrew and for refreshing forgotten knowledge. The author offers a very unconventional method to introduce the reader to the written Hebrew language. For the most part, he avoids naming complicated technical terms and rules. Instead, he sets tasks and also shows the solutions: Learning by doing!
