"The book is a remarkable contribution to the research and knowledge on the Jews of the Ottoman Empire; it is a significant aide for University students and scholars. . . . It is hoped that Levy's call for further collaborate research will materialize in additional volumes on ottoman Jewery."

This book focuses on central topics, such as the structure of the Jewish community, its organization and institutions and its relations with the state; the place Jews occupied in the Ottoman economy and their interactions with the general society; Jewish scholarship and its contribution to Ottoman and Turkish culture, science, and medicine. Written by leading scholars from Israel, Turkey, Europe, and the United States, these pieces present an unusually broad historical canvas that brings together different perspectives and viewpoints.
