Becoming a Jew

Becoming a Jew

by Maurice Lamm

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Lamm details conversion to Judaism as a process, a series of rituals, and as an entrance to a new community and lifestyle. Seventeen converts give moving testimony to the difficulties and blessings of their becoming Jewish. The traditional conversion process is explained, and various aspects of day-to-day Jewish observance and theology are detailed. Discussion of the Jewish year and rites of passage make this book useful for non-Jews wishing to understand Jewish practices, as well as for nonobservant Jews desiring deeper understanding of their heritage. Highly recommended for public libraries.
