Description

"An outstanding book, original, well written, and incisive. It will become the point of departure for all other research in the area."-William B. Helmreich, author of The World of the Yeshiva "Danzger's volume treats a subject that is both fascinating and complex. Especially noteworthy is his exploration of an inclusionary strain in Orthodox Jewish life that is often overlooked by sociologists and other contemporary observers."-Norman Lamm, Yeshiva University "The issues raised in this book are critical for our times."-Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, Founding Rabbi, Lincoln Square Synagogue "In a clear and lucid style, he examines the reasons for return, the schools established by Orthodox Judaism to deal with this return, and the values and conflicts thus engendered."-Library Journal "If one were to select the most important of the books on baalei teshuvah, 'returnees to Judaism,' the choice would clearly be Danzger's Returning to Tradition. This book goes far beyond the work of Janet Aviad and others. It offers the reader a clear, unified, and comprehensive approach to understanding the world of the baal teshuvah. It is based on many years of careful research into that community, both in Israel and in the United States. The author is intimately familiar with the ins and outs of the group he has chosen to study. He knows where they hang out, what their problems are, and the diversity of backgrounds from which they originate...First rate."-William B. Helmreich, American Jewish History
