So my mom and my dads second wife are Jewish but despite this all we really did was celebrate Hanukkah, Passover and Rosh Hashanah. When my dad and stepmom got divorced we stopped going to temple and it’s been nearly 10 years since I’ve done anything really meaningful to connect. I really want to get back to my roots and start idk… start being Jewish again? It sounds weird to say. My question is if anyone can recommend any books I should read? I feel like I’ve failed by letting it go this long.
I wasn’t raised Jewish
