With vibrant photographs and intricate stories Scattered Among the Nations tells the story of the world’s most isolated Jewish communities in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Former Soviet Union and the margins of Europe. Over 2,000 years ago, a shipwreck left seven Jewish couples stranded off India’s Konkan Coast, south of Bombay. Those hardy survivors stayed, built a community, and founded one of the fascinating groups described in this book—the Bene Israel of India’s Maharasthra Province. This story is unique, but it is not unusual. We have all heard the phrase “the lost tribes of Israel,” but never has the truth and wonder of the Diaspora been so lovingly and richly illustrated. To create this amazing chronicle of faith and resilience, the authors visited Jews in 30 countries across five continents, hearing origin stories and family histories that stretch back for millennia.

The issues dealt with in Scattered Pictures: Reflections of An American Muslim are approached from an Islamic analytical framework. It has been one of the goals of the Zaytuna Institute, to use the deep reservoir of traditional Islamic knowledge to provide insight into and solutions for Muslims' contemporary condition. By traditional Islamic knowledge, Imam Zaid Shakir refers not only to the Qur'an and the prophetic tradition (Sunna), but also to the wealth of jurisprudential and exegetical writings that have helped insure the historic integrity and continuity of the Islamic project. He also refers to the methodological tools that have allowed for a flexible, practical, and dynamic application of Islamic law. Only by Muslims immersing themselves in that reservoir will they be capable of making an intelligible contribution toward addressing the challenging issues of our times.
