"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-and she does it with a generosity of spirit and a clear head. A vision of a progressive Jewishness for a multicultural 21st century comes through proud and clear."
-Karen Brodkin, How Jews Became White Folks and What That Says About Race in America
"The Jewish women you'll meet in this book will inspire you, make you laugh, and challenge you to be more fierce. This is a book about liberation from our narrow places...
No matter who you are, you'll learn something new about being human."
-Noah T. Winer, MoveOn.org; Board member, Jewish Voice for Peace
"Hope Into Practice...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
