This book is a practical and inspirational companion to the conversion process for Jews-by-Choice and their families. Written primarily for the person considering the choice of Judaism, it provides highly personal insights from over 50 people who have made this life-changing decision.
But it also will speak to their families—the non-Jewish family that provided his or her spiritual beginnings and the Jewish "family" which receives the convert—and help them understand why the decision was made.
Rabbi Allan L. Berkowitz and Patti Moskovitz have worked with converts for a combined total of more than 30 years. To the editors of Embracing the Covenant, converts are “an inspiration” to the Jewish people. “Converts bring a purity of yearning and a strong spiritual dimension to Judaism that we badly need,” say Berkowitz and Moskovitz. “The Jewish people are strengthened by the mere presence of Jews-by-Choice.”
