Tablet Magazine's List of 101 Great Jewish Books

Type: Preset list created by MilkenLibrary

Description: Tablet Magazine's list, at http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-arts-and-culture/books/145840/101-great-jewish-books. Note: This list is heavily -- if not disproportionately -- male, Ashkenazi (European), and New York-centric. It includes few books by or about women or Sephardic (Spanish/Portuguese) or Mizrahi (Middle Eastern) Jews.
