Editorial Reviews

Review

Irene Shaland, an internationally-published art and travel writer, educator and lecturer, has a life-long passion for travel with a higher purpose. The Dao of Being Jewish and Other Stories, her third book, features fascinating tales she collected while visiting Jewish communities in 10 countries across Europe, Asia and Africa. 
Consider this the only book you will ever need to travel the Jewish world. Replete with photos, it ís half travel guide, half cultural history; Shaland takes you by the hand and delivers a Jewish heart.  -- C.J.Brown HaLapid
"These are not your usual travelogues with recommendations of where to stay or eat, but rather investigations of the evidence of Jewish communities...in some of the world's most exotic, romantic or just plain unlikely locations." --  L. Hankin, Editor, Intermountain Jewish News

From the Author

Several years ago, my husband Alex and I were participating in Yom Kippur services in our temple, singing the all-familiar "L'Dor Va'Dor" (From Generation to Generation). And suddenly something happened. These words, ubiquitous in Jewish life, found everywhere from bar mitzvah invitations to donor walls, sounded to me like a call to action.  "We are words and we are stories... We are carriers of wisdom... Not the first and not the last..." The congregation was singing "La'Dor Va'Dor nagid godlecha," and I knew then and there that I would write this book.
  Alex and I have a life-long passion for travel with a higher purpose. Together we have visited over sixty countries. We see travel as a process of growth, a personal art form that we--never as tourists, but always as students--create out of our memories and feelings, the places we visit, and people we meet. Globe-trotting, we make friends, create photo-galleries and slide shows, write articles, and present lectures. Six years ago, on that Yom Kippur morning, I made a decision to re-focus our travel on collecting Jewish narratives. Because we are the stories we tell to ourselves, to others, and to the world.
