Fragile Branches: Travels Through the Jewish Dispora

James R. Ross

Publisher: Riverhead Books

Many modern Jews are searching for a way back to their religious roots-and a better understanding of their Jewish identity. In Fragile Branches, James R. Ross blazes a path into the heart of the Jewish experience, raising provocative questions about what it means to be Jewish in today’s world. As he describes isolated Jewish communities in India, Peru, Brazil, and other unexpected countries, a vivid picture of contemporary Jewish life emerges, offering new perspectives on ancient precepts, thoughts, and rituals-and helping readers reexamine their own relationship with tradition.
