A Ugandan village. An island in the Amazon. A Peruvian mountain town. Throughout the world, in the unlikeliest places, isolated communities are embracing Judaism despite enormous obstacles. In this fascinating tour of six far-flung Jewish communities, James Ross creates a portrait of people who are currently risking their lives and livelihoods to exist as Jews, though in some cases they have no historical links to Judaism.
