Praise for Hope into Practice:
Hope into Practice: Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears...is a book for everyone, even recovering Catholics ...Hope floats throughout this book and the question, "What could Jewishness be without suffering or victimhood?" is asked in joy not shame. It is a question for all faith traditions."
--Kate Clinton, The Progressive Magazine
When I first read the Table of Contents, I was surprised to feel tears arise: tears of need, hunger, yearning, promise. Penny's book is filled with wild, truthful, and exuberant voices, you can feel their spirits in their words.
-Rabbi Margaret Holub
A wonderful, gutsy, and inspiring book. Penny Rosenwasser takes on the most explosive issues in American Jewish life today-racism and anti-Semitism, victimization and privilege, and Jewish politics around Israel and Palestine. A vision of a progressive Jewishness for a multicultural 21st century comes through proud and clear.
-Karen Brodkin, author of How Jews Became White Folks and What That Says About Race in America
