Liv­ing Jew­ish­ly: A Snap­shot of a Generation

  • From the Publisher
October 15, 2012

This vol­ume is a col­lec­tion of per­son­al essays by Jew­ish 20- and 30-some­things. Each piece offers a win­dow into how we express our Judaism-our voic­es togeth­er tell a com­plete story. 

Matthue Roth tack­les the con­flict­ed, some­times hyp­o­crit­i­cal nature of the Mod­ern Ortho­dox dat­ing world. Stacey Bal­lis makes the Passover Seder her own. Chai Wolf­man explores the chal­lenges of same-sex and inter­faith rela­tion­ships. Oth­er top­ics include JDate, issues sur­round­ing con­ver­sion, Israel, and the impos­si­ble task of defin­ing what it means to be a young Jew in Amer­i­ca today.
