Hence, to have a proper perspective about everything, you’ll have to mentally orient yourself that you’re trying to find a way in as a productive member of that Jewish family. You should also brace yourself for a long struggle ahead of you, because converting to Judaism is not a walk in the park. This audiobook will provide you with an excellent introduction to Judaism as well as what to expect during your conversion process, including lots of great tips and pointers that will help along the way.

No Good

Any additional comments?

Please find another book if you're interested in learning about converting to Judaism! This one is full of inaccuracies. The reader does pretty good except there were quite a few mispronunciations.

A Good Start

As a Jew who converted a long time ago, I think this book is a good first outline for someone looking to convert. It definitely didn't go into a lot of detail over the more cultural and ritualistic aspects of Judaism which I feel are pertinent knowledge to new comers. It is by no means (as the author says) a complete accumulation of information but may be helpful to those who know absolutely nothing about Judaism to start. All in all, I think it's an important book if you really are at step one.

Narrators voice bothered me

Very informative, but the narration left something to be desired. Every “s” or “sh” sound whistled, every “ch” was pronounced the American way, not the Hebrew way (chet). A lot of the Hebrew words were pronounced like he’d never read them & no one informed him that he’d need to read them out loud.

Prounce the dam words right

The book disappointed in scope. Although I like the narrator in general his pronunciation of key words was upsetting. Where was discussion of Renewal Judaism? Or at least a mention. Overall I appreciated the book and appreciated keeping Israeli Palestinian conflict. Out and focusing on both law and beliefs.
