While the topic of conversion in Judaism has been extensively covered, no single book has explored the particular laws related to a convert after conversion. In A Concise Code of Jewish Law for Converts, Rabbi Michael J. Broyde explores many topics and questions that revolve around the life of a Jewish convert. Such topics include the place of a convert in a Jewish community according to Jewish law, the treatment of a convert with respect to acceptance and discrimination, and providing affirmative incentives to converts. Containing a detailed review of every aspect of Jewish law from the convert’s perspective and in relation to them, as well as related supplemental essays, A Concise Code of Jewish Law for Converts provides knowledge and guidance on life after conversion.
