Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Becoming Jewish: New Jews and Emerging Jewish Communities in a Globalized World, edited by Tudor Parfitt and Netanel Fisher.

One of the most striking contemporary religious phenomena is the world-wide fascination with Judaism. Traditionally, few non-Jews converted to the Jewish faith, but today millions of people throughout the world are converting to Judaism and are identifying as Jews or Israelites. In this volume, leading scholars of issues related to conversion, Judaising movements and Judaism as a New Religious Movement discuss and explain this global movement towards identification with the Jewish people, from Germany and Poland to China and Nigeria.
