Anchored in Jewish ethical tradition, community-building, and an activist’s call to repair the world, “Hope into Practice” is about human liberation, linking personal healing with social justice. It also asks Jewish women to love ourselves enough to face our fears without acting on them—expanding our sense of possibility, empowering our activism. This book brings to life an irresistible blend of healing stories, fascinating history, and a fair-minded perspective on Israel-Palestine. It also includes an extensive Action-Oriented Reader's Guide, for groups and individuals.
"'Thank you' is what I thought I was supposed to say when told I didn't 'look Jewish.'" What will make it irresistible for Jewish women to free ourselves of internalized anti-Semitism? This book's bottom line is that the better we feel about who we are and where we come from, the better we’ll treat other people—and the more positive/powerful our activism will be in creating a just and generous world, plus the more joyful, expansive and meaningful our own lives will be.
