Becoming a Jew (English, Paperback, Silverman Rabbi Mel).

Becoming a Jew is a book which most Jews, both those born into the Covenant of Abraham and those who later .

Becoming a Jew is a book which most Jews, both those born into the Covenant of Abraham and those who later converted, will find most interesting. Many times while reading the book I was moved to tears by Rabbi Lamm's most beautiful and eloquent explanations of Jewish concepts that perhaps I had taken for granted. Rabbi Maurice Lamm's book Becoming a Jew succeeds admirably in addressing the three audiences to whom it is primarily directed-non-Jews who are contemplating converting, those who have already converted, and Jews by birth who wish to gain a deeper insight into their heritage.

The Talmud, the book of Jewish law, is one of the most challenging religious texts in the world . After reading the Aramaic, she embarked on a word-by-word textual analysis of a story about a rabbi who became immersed in his studies, and his wife who waited for him to return home

The Talmud, the book of Jewish law, is one of the most challenging religious texts in the world - so why are more people reading it than ever? . After reading the Aramaic, she embarked on a word-by-word textual analysis of a story about a rabbi who became immersed in his studies, and his wife who waited for him to return home. As a tear falls from the wife's eye, the roof that the rabbi is sitting on to study collapses underneath him and he falls to his death.

Faced with a thoroughly modern choice - adopt the religion you were born into or ignore it - the author chooses to embrace his four-thousand year old legacy and with it the enthralling and troubling consequences both personal and professional. His guides throughout: lay, academic, and seminary mentors - to whom he pays homage. The larger lesson: someone, somewhere, sometime will touch your life - follow the resonance. This is the story of a man/rabbi's ongoing struggle to cobble together identities born of American and Jewish selves generated in the Golden Ages of American and Jewish life in the most dazzling nugget of the Golden State - Southern California. Raised in mainly blue-collar Boyle Heights, East LA, at the time (forties to early fifties) the third largest Jewish community outside of New York City and Chicago, the author one day discovers his community suddenly dispersing westward to middleclass suburbia. Bereft of the "hood,", his buddies off to college and his family migrating to the ocean, he finds himself in a state of psycho-social limbo. Three words from his high school English teacher profoundly change the derelict youth. Transformative mentors, academia and the world of ideas, marriage, his former life in the Heights and an emerging Jewish self-consciousness, bring him to a career crossroads: Juvenile Hall or the synagogue? "Juvey" and the synagogue community combine in a match devised only by a retributive heaven - state prison chaplaincy! The struggle deepens, disenchantment and discovery proceed on and off course. His own three words to the reader: The moment awaits.
