Product Description

•••••
Composed as a meandering dialogue between a wily Georgian-Jewish banker and a Russian speaking Jewish young poet, this engaging book explains all the basic beliefs and practices of JudaismóJewish teachings on intermarriage and conversion, keeping the Sabbath, prayer and Torah, midrash and mitzvot, and God's presence in the world. Although the book has plenty of the "how to" of religious practice, Being a Jew is in the end an eloquent reflection on Judaism's deepest theme: living life as a way of serving God.
