This Jewish Life

Stories of Discovery, Connection and Joy

In This Jewish Life, fifty-four voices enable readers to experience a calendar’s worth of Judaism’s strengths — community, healing, transformation of the human spirit, and the influence of the Divine. Within these pages are stories of joyous engagement and poignant loss.

This Jewish Life is a year in the life of a contemporary Jew told by a variety of individuals. Their stories will carry readers, Jew and non-Jew alike, through twelve months of Jewish living.
