Kindling the Flame

Reflections on Ritual, Faith, and Family

Kindling the Flame shares the story of author Roberta Israeloff’s complex journey through faith as she reflects on the rituals, religion, and family relations that guided her from a rejection of organized religion to her eventual return to faith as she grew older.

Through profoundly far-reaching themes, Roberta Israeloff illuminates the tensions between the secular and the holy, as well as the many ways humankind can embrace them in the context of everyday life.

Moving forward and backward in time while following the fluid lines of a spiritual journey, Israeloff shares of how she rejected the organized religion of her mother and father as a child and young adult until starting a family of her own eventually brought her back to the power of faith.

Kindling the Flame is a portrait of belief and tradition suggesting that the religion of youth can deepen in adulthood, giving people of any faith a powerful way to experience humanity.
