In this intimate true story, a young Australian author describes her journey towards observant Judaism, detailing every arduous step, from Kashrut and Shabbat, to relationships and work. Told from the refreshing perspective of a young person, using the analogy of ‘building a home’, Freedman describes much more than the superficial details, such as ‘paint color and carpets’, but reserves her unique and warm advice for the more profound and enriching aspects of Jewish living.
Readers are guests at the author's chanukat habayit (housewarming party), enjoying a metaphorical tour through the author's new home, its physical surroundings and how they relate to her new religiously-observant lifestyle.
