Overview

From Yossi Klein Halevi—the critically acclaimed author of Like Dreamers, winner of the Jewish Book Council's Everett Family Foundation Jewish Book of the Year Award—comes a memoir, published in paperback for the first time with a new introduction, about his journey from Jewish extremism to interfaith reconciliation.

The child of a Holocaust survivor, Yossi Klein Halevi grew up in 1960s Brooklyn perceiving reality through the lens of his family's brutal past. Determined to take action—and seek retribution—he became a disciple of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane and a member of the radical fringe of the American Jewish community.

In this wry and moving account, Halevi explores the deep-rooted anger of his adolescence and early adulthood that fueled his militant politics. He reveals how he began to question his beliefs and see the world from his own clear perspective, freeing himself from being a hostage to rage.

Speaking to a new generation struggling to understand what it means to be Jewish in America, Memoirs of a Jewish Extremist explains how such a transform-ation can happen—giving hope that peaceful coexistence among faiths is possible.

    I own the hardcover of this book. Although born almost 10 years

    I own the hardcover of this book. Although born almost 10 years apart ossi and I had almost identical childhoods up through our college years. He was acquainted with the major figures on the Jewish scene of his time. he book is wonderfully written. My main question after reading it what happened to all these people he knew? Where are they now?He disagreed with Rabbi Kahane but does he disagree with the results? What does he think of todays Boro Park?
