About the Short Story

“The Conversion of the Jews” is about the struggles of Ozzie Freedman, a freethinking, thirteen-year-old boy in the midst of a serious crisis of faith that leads to trouble at Hebrew school. Ozzie, studying for his bar mitzvah, is beginning to have doubts about Jewish doctrine and organized religion in general. Attendees can request a copy of the short story.
