Conversion to Judaism provides information, advice, and support for individuals contemplating conversion to Judaism, as well as those who have converted and the families affected by this decision. With sensitivity and compassion, Lawrence J. Epstein offers an informative volume that warmly welcomes the newcomer to Judaism.

This comprehensive book, infused by an attitude of welcome and understanding, will be useful to those who think of becoming Jewish, and to their families on both sides. One of my students said this was the most helpful guidebook for the would-be convert yet.--Rabbi Rachel Cowan, The Nathan Cummings Foundation
