Lamm details conversion to Judaism as a process, a series of rituals, and as an entrance to a new community and lifestyle.

Discussion of the Jewish year and rites of passage make this book useful for non-Jews wishing to understand Jewish practices,
as well as for nonobservant Jews desiring deeper understanding of their heritage
