Synopses & Reviews
This is more than a book. It is a journey. The lyrical prose and evocative descriptions catapult the reader into a different place and time. This book should be on every Jewish bookshelf! Tammy Kaiser, MSJE, Jewish Educator and Author
A deeply insightful, wonderfully written, in all ways excellent read! Marc Yellen AbqJew.com
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. 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!
