Unlike many religions, Judaism has always discouraged converts, and the obstacles facing a prospective convert are manifold. Romanoff, director of the Jewish Converts Network, is in a unique position to provide guidance and direction to those considering conversion. Drawing on her own experiences as a convert, as well as situations encountered through her counseling activities, she has written a book with an appealing immediacy. She explains how "being Jewish" is not only a matter of faith but of acceptance into a closely knit community that shares a historical and cultural heritage. Romanoff does not minimize the persistence potential converts need to attain their goal. She includes chapters on the emotional impact of conversion, integrating into a spouse's family, maintaining relations with the non-Jewish family, raising children, etc. This informative book is indispensable for anyone considering conversion to Judaism.- Carol R.
