Book Cover - That Precious Strand of Jewishness that Challenges Authority

 

Now available from Five Leaves Bookshop Occasional Papers

 
Singer-songwriter Leon Rosselson questions what it means to be Jewish.
 
"For my parents and grandparents, Jewish identity, in religion, culture and language, was a given. Not so for me. I'm not religious, not a Zionist, so in what consists my Jewishness? Is a love of chopped liver and a belief that chicken soup cures all ills enough? And does it matter? This is the story of my search for answers. It is an argument with myself, with song lyrics to embellish the argument."
