What does it mean to become a Jewish woman?

This growing up business isn't always what it's cracked up to be: It can be complicated and scary and seem impossibly hard. With all the choices and challenges before her, how does a girl become a young Jewish woman?

The JGirl's Guide is a first-of-its-kind book of practical, real-world advice using Judaism as a compass for the journey through adolescence. This newly updated and expanded survival guide for coming of age explores the wisdom and experiences of rabbis, athletes, writers, scholars, musicians and great Jewish thinkers.

This inspiring, interactive book can help Jewish girls figure it all out. It explores what happens at school and with friends. It shows them how to get along better with their families. It offers them a chance to hear the voices of other girls going through experiences just like theirs.

Now's the time when girls are thinking: Who am I? What do I believe in? Who will I become? The JGirl's Guide provides Jewish writings, traditions and advice that can help.
