Jew in the Pew is a memoir of a year of my life as a Jew in a church... When we moved to a quaint little seaside town in Florida, away from the traffic and sinus pressure of Philadelphia, it never occurred to me that in the midst of that subtropical paradise some spiritual genetic time bomb would go off. I was no longer okay with going to church and raising our kids the way we had been. More than ever I missed all the Jewish things with which I had been raised. The white bread, mayonnaise Christian world began to chafe like corduroy on sunburn, which is seriously unfortunate since my husband was Baptist. It was time to face my past, what we were doing in our present and decide who I wanted to be in the future. The only way I knew how to do that was to spend a year writing furiously.

"Christians and Jews are inter-marrying today in larger numbers than ever before. Jenny Berg-Chandler takes us behind the chuppah with an honest, humorous and inviting style that helps us understand some of the personal conflicts of being "A Jew in the Pew". - Paul Wilbur, International Messianic Recording Artist
"Loving your book - halfway through as hard to put down. Feel as if we are spending time together! Thanks for sharing of yourself. I found your story a fascinating and highly engaging read." - Andrea Mail, Former Executive Director at British Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
"Jew in the Pew is a very honest look at the challenges of being Jewish in a church and the struggle to enjoy the depth and heritage of Jewish culture while also trying to connect in a Christian community." - Sean Yost, Pastor of Christ the Redeemer Church & Founder of YouthQuake Live
I wish every Christian would read Jenny Chandler's memoir of growing up Jewish, then Messianic, and then leaving her heritage behind to assimilate into Gentile culture. Being Jewish is a calling and having that ripped from you is painful. Some like Esau give it away from a few morsels, but Jenny didn't accept the fact that she could not longer fulfill this calling. Her journey back, without compromising her faith in Yeshua, is inspiring, enlightening and highly educational for the Church.Ron Cantor, Author, Identity Theft: How Jesus was Robbed of His Jewishness
This one-of-a-kind book does something that few books can do - It entertains and educates at the same time. In her witty, funny, typical Jenny way, the author plunges us into her world of Jewish/Christian relations, answering questions that many have never even thought to ask. Jamie Lash, TV co-host of Jewish Jewels.
