The Third Jewish Catalogue: Creating Community

THE THIRD JEWISH CATALOGUE: CREATING COMMUNITY compiled and edited by Sharon Strassfeld and Michael Strassfeld. Jewish Publication Society, paperback, $9.95.

More issue-oriented than the first two volumes of this do-it-yourself kit for how to be a Jew in North America, the third and final volume covers tzedakah (giving and getting), treatment of the elderly (including what to look for if you need to place a relative or friend in an old-age home), and very useful and touching material on intermarriage and conversion, among other “communal” topics. Sharon Strassfeld’s The Jewish Family Book is soon to appear from Bantam Books.
