Riassunto: What does growing up Jewish mean? How can young people reconcile centuries of tradition with the modern world? Can they embrace their religion with all my heart, with all my mind ? Asher posed these & other questions to 13 Jewish writers: herself, Eve Feldman, Merrill Gerber, Jacqueline Greene, Johanna Hurwitz, Eric Kimmel, Sonia Levitin, Carol Matas, Gloria Miklowitz, Susan Pfeffer, Ruth Sender, Phyllis Shalant, & Jane Zalben. From the last days of Masada to the future colonization of the moon, these stories provide unique & personal insights. In the interviews following each story, the authors discuss their own experiences growing up Jewish. These are stories that will make you laugh, cry, think, & help you to explore what it means to be a Jew. Juv.
