It is a short book, but it presented a fairly good perspective about some of the situations encountered during and after conversion as well as offering some helpful advice. ( )

A convert's discussion on how to "own" Judaism. Gives lots of fairly good advice. However, I don't think I am really going to have a problem "owning" Judaism. I am certainly going to have an issue with all this Hebrew but that's ok. I hate to say this but I've owned my bit of Judaism for such a long time that I am pretty comfortable with the version I have. I don't want to add more. At this stage, I just want to live as a really good Reform Jew because I am already living as a very good Reform Jew. Yiddish means more than Hebrew to me and that is how I see Judaism. That is one example of my ownership. I own Jewish humour too. I also own some of the stereotypes be it for better or for worse.
