Description
 
James R. Ross. Throughout the world, in the unlikeliest places, isolated communities are embracing Judaism despite enormous obstacles. In this tour of six far-flung Jewish communities, Ross creates a portrait of people who are currently risking their lives & livelihoods to exist as Jews, though, in many cases, they have no historical links to Judaism. As he describes these communities in India, Peru, Brazil, Israel, & Uganda, he offers us new perspectives on ancient precepts, thoughts, & rituals, & inspires us to reexamine our own relationships with tradition. In reminding us of the diversity & richness of Jewish life, this book begs the ever-perplexing question of who is a Jew, a question that has troubled Jews & non-Jews alike for centuries.
