Diana from Costa Rica discovered her Spanish-Portuguese Jewish ancestry from a high school genealogy project. A Pentecostal Christian Torontonian, Adam questioned his beliefs as a teen. Polish Bianka sought community and an intellectual approach to spirituality.

This thought-provoking study of religious self-discovery reveals a range of religious ideas and practices, and what it means to be Jewish today.
