    • Synopsis
    • To convert to Judaism is a difficult road. Many times it is a challenge, an endurance test. Embracing Judaism? Who on Earth would undergo such an experience and why? A local Rabbi would ironically say “don’t you already have enough problems”?
      In spite of this, there are those who decide to convert to Judaism. Do they become completely Jewish? In Argentina, this will depend on which strand of Judaism he or she converts to. Writer Sholem Aleijem asserted with sarcasm: “How hard it is to be a Jew!” “Jews by Choice” is the story of a group of people determined to live this ‘difficulty’ while trying to transcend it.
