Hidden Treasure

Book cover
A Jewish Mother in Shangri-la by Rosie Rosenzweig

An old joke tells of a Jewish woman who treks to the Himalayas to seek an audience with a guru sitting in seclusion on a mountaintop. When at last she comes before him, she implores: “Sheldon, come home!” Rosie Rosenzweig was that Jewish mother—but in real life, the story has a different ending. Instead of asking her own Sheldon—her son, Ben—to come home, Rosie accepts his invitation to find out about Buddhism firsthand. Her adventures in Buddhist practice will make you kvell.
