I've read about American Jews and I've read about African Americans, but I've never read a book that so brilliantly illuminates these two groups as does Ernest Adams' "From Ghetto to Ghetto." And that is because the author has been an insider in both worlds...Adams sheds important new light on black-Jewish relations, racism and anti-Semitism. This is a fascinating book that has a lesson on every page.

-- Ari L. Goldman, author of "The Search for God at Harvard"

The depth of Ernest Adams' intellect is matched only by the depth of his heart. Ernest Adams has much to teach us all. His insights are fresh and his emotions always real...there are a lot of important truths in this book. Read it!

-- Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of "Jewish Literacy," and "A Code of Jewish Ethics: volume 1: You Shall Be Holy"

In the literature about religious conversion and spiritual searching, Ghetto To Ghetto stands out. This is a testament to the polyglot face of American Jewry and indeed of 21st-century America itself.

-- Samuel G. Freedman, author of "Jew Versus Jew" and "Upon This Rock"

This memoir is by turns heartfelt, humorous, and heartbreaking. It is definitely a must read.

-- Grace Edwards, author of "The Viaduct"
