"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?

I loved this book. It is so well written, with a big heart, deep analysis and a path for action. Timely and important information for all citizens of the world, both Jews and Gentiles. Highly highly highly recommended. Barbara Higbie
This is a book that every person, Jewish or gentile, female or not, needs to read as soon as possible. I really can't recommend it enough. Written by Penny Rosenwasser, a founding board member of Jewish Voice For Peace and former Jewish Caucus Chair of the National Women's Studies Association, "Hope Into Practice Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears" exemplifies the Jewish ethical tradition of social justice activism.

I found this book truly inspiring, enlightening to me as a Gentile woman. The hope and joy that shone through gave my great hope for the future. The sharing of the realities of the generational pain carried by Jewish women humbled me but also explained why Israel is so governed by fear. My admiration for the American Jewish women and men who stand alongside the Palestinians and continue to protest the Israeli occupation, knows no bounds. When I was in the States 25 years ago I attended the UN Special Session on The Question of Palestine and there met Jewish people who were against the Occupation.I thought them remarkable and courageous people and this book confirms that original impression a thousand fold. Reading this book was a very moving experience and I will be recommending it to others.
