   Note: Books such as Donin's [6]To Be A Jew and [7]To Pray As A Jew are
   also a good place to start Teshuvah. You'll also find good information
   in the [8]Jewish Catalog series, especially the 2nd and 3rd volumes.
   Quoting from the "Guide to Baalei Teshuvah" in the 2nd volume of the
   Jewish Catalog: "Jewish tradition places an emphasis on the role of
   belief and allegiance. Thus the baal teshuvah--master of repentance;
   one who turns--often begins his/her trek back to an effective and
   gratifying Jewish consciousness through the renewed acceptance of
   neglected observances and symbols".
