Also available as an eBook in the Amazon Kindle Store .

In a fresh collection of thoughtful essays, 20 writers explore the blessings and challenges of Jewish Unitarian Universalist identity and community. While there has been a long and consistent presence of Jewish culture and people in Unitarian Universalism, this poignant anthology is the first to give voice to this community's struggles, wisdom, and contributions. Essayists include born Jews who came to Unitarian Universalism, Unitarian Universalists who adopted Judaism as a spiritual path, and Unitarian Universalists who have encountered Judaism in diverse ways.

Glossary

Quotes:

Leah Hart-Landsberg and Marti Keller have assembled a rich and exciting collection of reflections by people in the Unitarian Universalist world who are also Jewish. The inner conflicts, the joyous integration of both traditions, and the wisdom that emerges from the life experiences of the contributors to this book open all of us readers to new insights in both traditions!
—Rabbi Michael Lerner, Editor, Tikkun Magazine

Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism is a powerful expression of the depth, breadth, and diversity of Jewish belief and practices within contemporary Unitarian Universalism. These essays detail some of the joys and struggles of living as a hyphenated UU, and yet, because of that struggle, many of the authors have found both their Jewish and Unitarian Universalist faith deepened.
—Kathleen Rolenz, Editor, Christian Voices in Unitarian Universalism
