In This Jewish Life: Stories of Discovery, Connection, and Joy fifty-two voices enable readers to experience a calendarâ€™s worth of Judaismâ€™s strengthsâ€”community, healing, transformation of the human spirit, and the influence of the Divine. Within these pages are stories of joyous engagement and poignant loss. Readers will meet a teen who followed the path of Judaism after a chance encounter and men and women who turned to Judaism in their struggles with drug addiction and spousal abuse. Structured to mirror a complete year of Jewish life cycle events and holidays, this unique book showcases a bar mitzvah service in rural Illinois, a commitment ceremony in a California metropolis, a Soviet familyâ€™s first Passover Seder, and much more.
This Jewish Life is a year in the life of a contemporary Jew told by a variety of individuals. Their stories will carry readers, Jew and non-Jew alike, through twelve months of Jewish living.
