Rivka (or anyone else), could you recommend any texts or readings regarding the unity of God in the Jewish tradition? I'm looking particularly at Exodus 3:14, and at this point, any sort of theology surrounding it, the older, the better.

Perhaps "The Midrash Says", Volume II, (The Book of Shemos/Exodus). Published by Bnay Yakov Publications (718) 376-5903.

I don't suppose you will find this outside of a Jewish book store, but I'm sure it can be ordered.

The text is completely in English, and it makes a good companion to the original work (the Bible, that is).

The Midrash Says (one volume or the set) can also be purchased online. (The layout of the page is a bit confusing; you want the green volume on the top right.)

It's a good overview of Jewish understanding of the text.

For readings specifically on the nature of God, I recommend the late R' Aryeh Kaplan's writings. Specifically, If You Were God. Some articles by him and excerpts of his books are available at, such as this one. It is an excerpt from The Handbook of Jewish Thought, Volume 1.
