Description

"You are about to embark on something more than a book. You are about to participate in a quest for friendship, understanding, and love, beyond language, religion, and borders..."



--from Josep's foreword

It began as an extraordinary correspondence across the Mediterranean.

Josep, a secular Catholic from Barcelona, wanted to learn about Daniella's life as an American-Israeli Orthodox Jew. Her enthusiastic response to his curiosity resulted in this collection of entertaining and enlightening letters.

With nuance, candor, and warmth--and a liberal dash of humor--Daniella paints a vivid picture of observant Jewish life. She explains complex concepts in a manner so unassuming and accessible that even the most uninitiated can relate--but with enough depth that the knowledgeable will find new insight, too.

Whether you're a curious non-Jew or a Jew hoping to expand your knowledge, Letters to Josep will charm, inform, and inspire you.
