I am in a newly committed relationship with a wonderful man. He has mentioned that his Judaism is very important to him and that he is of the Reform Judaism persuasion. He has said for him it is less about the religion itself and more about its traditions and positive life lessons/values. I am interested in learning more about Reform Judaism and would like book recommendations that can introduce me to the basics.
I come from a pretty secular background, both within my family and socially. My only experience is having attended a handful of Passover seders. I'm not looking to convert, and I know I can just ask him about his experiences, but I'd like to learn a little bit about the background, beliefs, holidays, traditions, and other practices to satisfy my curiosity and have a framework for future conversations with him.
Book recommendations please. Websites can only hold my attention for so long :)
Thanks for your help!
