Kind of answers the question of Why Judaism? The answer is pretty much Why Not? The book demonstrates the importance of ritual and Jewish action as community-building and comforting elements of Jewish religious practice--whether or not you accept "stories" about God or reject the religious aspects of your Jewish upbringing.
