"This is a great book for anyone wishing to understand the basics and a bit more of being Jewish and bringing up a family to understand their Jewish identity. The author writes with clarity, passion and pastoral concern, making complex issues easy to understand and accessible in bite-sized chunks. Lots of rich resources on Jewish life, history, culture, humor and food, with dollops of practical advice and an easy introduction into Jewish life. Great work - what's next - the study guide or the movie?" - Richard Harvey, Academic Dean, All Nations.
