about

This memoir is a tribute to all parents who stand behind their children’s live-altering decisions. While many of our contemporaries struggle with the issues of children who intermarry and grandchildren who are not raised as Jews, author BJ Rosenfeld has dealt with perhaps the opposite challenge: sons who have gone beyond her and her husband’s Conservative Jewish observance and become Orthodox Jews. The result: "The Chameleon in the Closet," a humorous, touching, thought-provoking memoir in which she takes us on her journey to meld her own lifestyle with those of her sons and their new families. A freelance writer living in upstate New York, Ms. Rosenfeld travels through the ultra Orthodox world of her son in Israel, the Modern Orthodox world of her other son in New York, and her own world – one in which a mother’s instinctive understanding and acceptance of her children’s choices and her willingness and ability to compromise will surely strike a chord not only with readers who have children, but with those who have parents as well.
