Reviews
"Two bestselling authors engage in an enlightening back-and-forth about Jewishness and antisemitism...An important dialogue at a fraught time, emphasizing mutual candor, curiosity, and respect." -Kirkus
"This is a book where all pre­tense is gone...the authors are hon­est about what they don't know, assump­tions they've made and reac­tions they've had. [It's a book] for every­one... it pro­vides read­ers an oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn basic infor­ma­tion to refute anti­semitism and edu­cate oth­ers in every­day life... [It] is an acces­si­ble book that breaks down impor­tant top­ics in a way that includes rel­e­vant his­to­ry and infor­ma­tion, with­out judg­ment... Above all, it's a book about hope -- and Acho and Tish­by nev­er lose sight of that fact." - Jaime Herndon, The Jewish Book Council
