5.0 out of 5 stars Still Jewish, May 8, 2009
As a Jewish man married to a non-Jewish woman, I approached this book from the gender flip-side and couldn't put it down. With each page, I found myself reflecting on my own sense of identity and how it shapes the dynamics of my marriage and the way I interact with my two children. Reading Still Jewish was like holding up a mirror to our lives. McGinity's work offers the best of both worlds. It has the weight of scholarship behind it, but her writing is a pleasure, fluent and accessible, and in the very personal stories she relates, she is empathetic, objective and insightful all at once. I've since given my copy to my wife, but the impact of the book has stayed with me. I feel more attuned than ever to the challenges and rewards of being a husband and father. It's hard to ask for more out of book when it manages to shed light on the lives of others even as it teaches us about ourselves.
