Coming Home: A Woman’s Story of Conversion to Judaism
Linda M. Shires (au)
She grew up in an upper-middle-class Protestant family in New England. Yet, “Judaism was to be my ‘bashert’, my destiny,” maintains Shires -- wife, mother, and professor. For almost 20 years, she lived the life of a Jewish wife, passing as a Jew when she participated in Jewish holiday rituals with her husband and her 3 stepchildren. When she wanted, she thought of herself as a Christian. Here, she tells the story of why she became committed to a life of religious observance and questioning. Her narrative is passionate, spiritual, and learned as it moves from the halls of Princeton to the Holocaust camps of Germany and back again. “This richly felt story of conversion to Judaism expands our idea of what constitutes a spiritual journey and a religious practice.”
