Since its original publication in 1987, Embracing Judaism has enjoyed much popularity as a warm and accessible introduction to Judaism and a supportive guide for Jews by choice. This book will bring readers closer to understanding the foundations and development of Judaism, as well as the basics of Jewish life and practice. This updated edition contains new material, a revised personal essay by Rachel Cowan, and a comprehensive bibliography.
“Maimonides says that if you love God, you will want to share that feeling with others. In this wonderful volume, Rabbi Kling conveys his deep love of God and the Jewish tradition, and provides a wonderful summary of Judaism's distinctive spiritual and ethical message. I highly recommend it for prospective Jews by choice and all those interested in Judaism as a religious faith and a holy way of life.” -Eric H. Yoffie, president, Union of American Hebrew Congregations.
“Embracing Judaism is a book that speaks to the heart, from its title to its warm, lucid, and inclusive tone. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the values and practices of Judaism – meaning everyone who cares about Jewish life today.” -Francine Klagsbrun, author ofJewish Days: A Book of Jewish Life and Culture Around the Year.
“More than Judaism 101, more than a convert's primer, this book delivers the basics of Jewish tradition with remarkable sensitivity, clarity, and inclusiveness born of loving-kindness. Rachel Cowan's essay alone is worth the cover price.” -Letty Cottin Pogrebin, author of Deborah, Golda and Me: Being Female and Jewish in America.
