Your People, My People, originally printed by the Jewish Publication Society, is a very practical handbook for Jews by choice and their families in dealing with the choices and potential difficulties surrounding the conversion process itself, the options available, and the challenges to families, rabbis, and the Jewish community as a whole.
This book is also helpful to those non-Jews who are in an interfaith marriage who need to understand their Jewish partner. Chapters on Israel, the Holocaust, and raising children are especially relevant.
It is estimated that 500,000 individuals in the United States are involved in a Jewish - Christian interfaith relationship. These individuals have found the answers provided in this book quite helpful. Because of the demand for this information, a second edition of Your People, My People has now been printed.
