(but don't ever use that word!) and read it if you a Jewish-curious, grew up in the past 50 years, like a book that gets to the point and the points are good and sharp, thought-provoking and, for a final word: this book is poignant in every best sense of the word. Order several: you'll want to send them to friends.
A friend who's very open about not having been born Jewish (her husband was), always looks a little uncomfortable when someone refers to her as a "convert". Now that I've read this honest, unflinching, and practical book, I have some insight into why. Conversion is a transitory process, not a permanent state. Thank you for that, Mary/Miriam.
There is a message here: You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate the journey, you do have to be passionate about your goal.
