"I was nine years old when my mother forced me to convert to Christianity...."

When Theodore Ross moved from New York City to small-town Mississippi, his mother insisted that the family pretend to not be Jewish. He was sent to an Episcopal school, where he studied the Bible, sang in the choir, and even took communion. As an adult, he abandoned the religious charade, but wondered: Am I a Jew? In search of an answer, Ross immersed himself within communities on the fringes of Jewish identity-"Crypto-Jews," "Lost Tribes," the ultra-Orthodox, and more. Filled with humor, curiosity, and sincerity, Am I a Jew? explores America's riotous religious diversity, and one man's quest to stake a claim within it.
