The New Jew is a story of an unexpected road to conversion, from Sally's first culture shock in synagogue, through encounters with rabbis that left her feeling alienated, to the warmth of Jewish friends and family who drew her in. Woven into the story is Sally’s relationship with Bernice, her Manhattanite Jewish mother-in-law, whose unexpected death offers a particular poignancy to her journey.
