Like Ruth: Choosing to Be Chosen: Over 30 Personal Stories, with a "How to" Introduction celebrating progressive Judaism (English Edition)
Progressive Judaism offers a unique vision to heal the world and continue the work of creation as God's partner: active, committed, joyful. Thirty people have recorded their journey from their first interest in Judaism in theory, to the practical steps taken towards the rabbinic court decision to welcome them into the tribe. Two contributors are righteous gentiles, seeking to support Israel in their chosen ways. The Editor of this conversion to Judaism project, Hava Fleming, explains the steps, encourages and supports the writers and future converts. An extensive introduction, bibliography and references to helpful websites are referenced throughout. In the Appendices, three extra topics are covered: Israel, Halachah and the children of converts. For a supportive, encouraging aide to those wishing to convert to Judaism, this multi-national selection of stories will be an inspiration.
