Judea Pearl (editor), Ruth Pearl (editor)

Publisher: Jewish Lights



Millions of people around the world identify themselves as Jews, but what does that really mean? An inspiring collection of many viewpoints led by the parents of Daniel Pearl.

What did it mean to Daniel Pearl when he declared, "I am Jewish"? What does it mean to many of the millions of Jews who have uttered the same phrase?

Based on the last words of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl�who was murdered by terrorists in Pakistan during the U.S. war against the Taliban�I Am Jewish examines what this short statement means to Jewish people from all walks of life, from all around the world, in their own words.

Through personal essays, theological statements, historical reflections, stories, memoirs, and more, contributors�both famous Jews and average citizens�express what being Jewish means to them.

We can�t know what Daniel Pearl was thinking when he declared "I am Jewish," but his words now serve as an important springboard into an inspirational exploration of Jewish identity.

Contributors include: Edgar M. Bronfman, Alan M. Dershowitz, Kitty Dukakis, Thomas Friedman, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Senator Joseph Lieberman, Shimon Peres, Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, Elie Wiesel, ...and dozens of other people.
