In order to marry the love of his life, Alistair must convert to Judaism- but does he have what it takes?
Alistair MacLean must convert to Judaism in order to marry Leah, love of his life. Despite Alistair's demonstrated scholarship, the Bet Din (board of Rabbis) declares they cannot convert Alistair because he has not found his "y'did nefesh" (Jewish soul). There remains only one option- "Dassie Golblatt's Cultural Boot Camp". Dassie's camp allows no book learning and more importantly, absolutely no emotional distance. Just as the pushed, prodded, stressed Alistair gives up all hope of marrying Leah, his "y'did nefesh" is revealed in full glory.
