|Diversity Within the Return to Religion: The Baal T’shuvah Phenomenon in Three Works of Recent Jewish American Fiction. (Martin Ras)|
After four years of study the time had finally come for me to write what proved to be my biggest essay ever: my doctoral thesis. After following a course on Jewish American Fiction my interest in this scientific field was aroused, and that is why I chose to write about the Jewish American experience as reflected in fiction. I would like to thank Dr. Derek Rubin for his excellent guidance during this difficult process. I would also like to extend my gratitude to my second supervisor Dr. Roselinde Supheert for providing me with her keen insights and useful comments.
