Los Angeles, CA, July 28, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Becoming Jewish is a memoir from Eva Kowalski - a Polish Catholic girl who was born in the country where a majority of Jews lived for centuries leading up to one of the worst human crimes in history - the Holocaust, yet growing up she didn’t know what a “Jew” was and had never met a Jewish person till she was 24-years of age when she interviewed a Rabbi from the Chaplain's Department in the Navy.

Her life story is fascinating from her struggles with immigration, living on a mountain in Lake Arrowhead during her legal non-existence in the United States to successfully appealing her immigration case only to find herself in a Section 8 apartment in a sketchy part of downtown LA. The author has an existential crisis, which she recovers from while studying Judaism leading to her conversion.

Only 2% of the Jewish population are converts, so that makes this story highly unique from the perspective of the minority of a minority. The author is still not out of her bohemian rut and is appealing to the public through indiegogo to help make this project a reality and bring her story out into the mainstream. You can support here:

This story aims to present Judaism in a positive light, which may even help dispel some of the negative stereotypes that currently exist. By supporting the crowdfunding campaign you can be a part of this literary movement, which aims to promote kindness, tolerance, equality and Tikkun Olam (a call to heal and repair the world).
