Philip Gold, an accomplished writer, journalist, scholar, wandered forty years before returning to the Judaism he'd left behind. But he didn't return so much as bring back the seeds of a new kind of Judaism with him. YOM KIPPUR PARTY GOODS is much more than a personal tale, am memoir of pain and seeking told with humor and grace. It's also for everyone who's tired of going hungry in the supermarket of modern spirituality, who finds (over) organized religion irrelevant or distasteful, and who is looking to find — or create — something personal that might also speak to others. You don't have to be Jewish to read this or need this. Just be a human being who wants something more. For yourself For your world. For your God.
