Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692265821, Paperback)

Author Mary E. Carter became Jewish after age fifty. This is her story. It’s a story about creating a new life and making changes as an older adult. More than a how-to book, Carter takes the reader through her process of self-reflection and growth and provides insights into her family and cultural influences. She discusses: finding rabbis, attending classes, studying, making a Hebrew name, and the commitment at the mikvah. This is a book for anyone thinking about becoming Jewish as an adult. This is also a book for anyone considering any form of major change after age fifty. Mary E. Carter demonstrates that it is possible for an older person to continue growing and changing later in life. This is not to say that everyone can or will, but, certainly, anyone can try. L’Chaim!
