Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0824604679, Hardcover)

Countless times each day, from Anchorage to Bangkok, Chabad-Lubavitch representatives surprise bystanders with the question, “Excuse me, are you Jewish?” Devoting their lives to helping others appreciate their spiritual heritage and add meaning to their lives, these men and women travel to all corners of the globe, carrying out their mission of shlichus, or outreach.

Part of the larger chassidic sect of Judaism, the Chabad-Lubavitch movement stresses the importance of filtering spiritual inspiration and experience through the intellect while emphasizing responsibility, care, and love toward every man, woman, and child. Under the leadership of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the movement rose from the ravages of the Holocaust, created a broad array of outreach programs and educational institutions, and is today a dynamic force in world Judaism.

Excuse me, are you Jewish? is a fascinating and inspiring collection of candid experiences as told by those who actually live lives of mission. Assembled and edited by the esteemed Malka Touger, they show us how ordinary people can help change the world by sharing with their brethren the path to spiritual enrichment.

Distributed exclusively by Jonathan David Publishers, Inc.
