A free Kindle Dowload will be available of my book titled Who is a Jew? starting tomorrow (June 26th ) and lasting till this Friday (June 30th).

Jewish identity is complicated because it entails religious, ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and national components. Each of these contributes to the identity of who is a Jew. This book surveys biblical and rabbinic views on what constitutes Jewish identity within traditional Judaism but also reviews the positions of Reform and Conservative Judaism.

This book available on Amazon also discusses the problem of conversion to Judaism and the case of apostasy. Both of these issues have far reaching impact for American Jews as well as Jewish communities throughout the world.
