Have you ever asked yourself whom Jews consider to be Jewish? Is one born a Jew? Does one have a choice? Marriage, religious conviction, even feelings of guilt in the face of history can be reasons for seeking membership of the Jewish community. And what about the practical side of things if someone wishes to convert to Judaism? The numerous personal testimonies by converts from the past and the present make the book lively reading. It is a kaleidoscope of what it means to be Jewish, correcting the impression that one becomes a Jew by birth alone.
