What grabs Jews is the return to history.... If you look at adult education classes being offered all over town, you see people in the Jewish community are very hungry for history, for learning. That is where The Da Vinci Code is most dangerous... On the one hand, it resonateswith a deep desire for education; on the other hand, you're satisfying that desire with inaccurate information. It's like watching "CSI" and taking it all as scientific fact, or watching "ER" and trying to practice medicine.
