"Contemporary Judaism in the Second House of Bondage is the latest work of Dr. Ebrami. In this book, written in a simple but rich style, he investigates the effects of the Diaspora in Judaism, with this goal, he first analyzes five elements of Judaism and the shows the impact of the extremely long period of the Diaspora on each element. This book does not discuss massacres of the Jews, programs, holocausts and the like. Instead it sheds light only on the Judaism and hints its suffering and deformation which continues to our time. The conclusion is a thought-provoking invitation to further research. The last chapter, which is a message to Jewish youth, is an inspiring section for our entire generation"--back cover.
