God-Optional Judaism: Alternatives for Cultural Jews Who Love Their History, Heritage and Community will be re-issued in the fall of 2016 and will be available from Jewish Currents, CSJO, and Amazon. The book provides ways for non-religious Jews to celebrate holidays and life cycle occasions and includes chapters on the diverse history of the Jewish people and on how to find or found a community of cultural Jews in which you can be Jewish in a way that is authentic both to you and to Jewish tradition. Written in a chatty, informal style, the book gives examples of how various cultural Jews have expressed their Jewishness with continuity, connection and commitment.
