From the Back Cover When I first read the Table of Contents, I was surprised to feel tears arise: tears of need, hunger, yearning, promise. Penny's book is filled with wild, truthful, and exuberant voices, you can feel their spirits in their words. -Rabbi Margaret Holub

A wonderful, gutsy, and inspiring book. Penny Rosenwasser takes on the most explosive issues in American Jewish life today--racism and anti-Semitism, victimization and privilege, and Jewish politics around Israel and Palestine--and she does it with a generosity of spirit and a clear head. A vision of a progressive Jewishness for a multicultural 21st century comes through proud and clear. -Karen Brodkin, author of How Jews Became White Folks and What That Says About Race in America

Based on the bold assumption that communal and individual healing is integral to justice work, Rosenwasser's multi-disciplinary book is written from a poignant, personal perspective. Hope into Practice allows readers to reflect on their own struggles with Jewish identity, queerness, and ethical commitment in order to imagine a better future. A must-read for all Jewish feminists! -Alainya Kavaloski, Jewish Caucus Chair, National Women's Studies Association

The Jewish women you'll meet in this book will inspire you, make you laugh, and challenge you to be more fierce. This is a book about liberation from our narrow places and the power to change the world. No matter who you are, you'll learn something new about being human
. -Noah T. Winer, Co-founder,; Board member, Jewish Voice for Peace

A teaching story for all of us. -Akaya Windwood, President, Rockwood Leadership Institute

A powerful tool for today's Jewish activists. Rosenwasser challenges us to ask what Jewishness could be without suffering or victimhood--questions asked with joy, not shame.
Hope Into Practice acknowledges that we cannot wait to heal all our wounds before we act--but cannot wait until our movements are successful before we turn to our healing. -Marjorie Dove Kent, Executive Director, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice
