Fourteen Jewish men and women stepped beyond their family religion to become leaders of other spiritual paths. They became a Sikh, Sufi, Buddhist, Taoist, Hindu chant master, visionary artist, Advaita teacher, Pagan witch, interfaith minister, Catholic priest, and a leader of a syncretic Brazilian church. Alan Levin shares their fascinating stories and their wisdom with rich reflections on the meaning of tribal identity, heresy, and who and what we truly are.
