A moving and revealing exploration of Hasidic life and one man's struggles with faith, family, and community.
Shulem Deen was raised to believe that questions are dangerous. As a member of the Skverers, one of the most insular Hasidic sects in the US, he knows little about the outside world - only that it is to be shunned. His marriage at 18 is arranged, and several children soon follow.
Deen's first transgression - turning on the radio - is small, but his curiosity leads him to the library and, later, the Internet. Soon he begins a feverish inquiry into the tenets of his religious beliefs until, several years later, his faith unravels entirely. Now a heretic, he fears being discovered and ostracized from the only world he knows. His relationship with his family at stake, he is forced into a life of deception and begins a long struggle to hold on to those he loves most: his five children.
In All Who Go Do Not Return, Deen bravely traces his harrowing loss of faith while offering an illuminating look at a highly secretive world.

I would like to reply to comment on Henry 's one star review which seems to be due to condemning the writer for leaving the Chasidic life rather than a view on the writing. There was " no reason" for him to leave this community. Deep unhappiness and sense of no longer fitting in? Also Henry tells us, "99% of the community are happy". How do we know this? We don't hear their voices because generally Chasidim don't write autobiographies or give interviews. Some are very happy, maybe a majority but some do not speak out for fear of losing children and relatives or retribution from other followers.
I read this book in the space of about 4 hours. I found it completely gripping and to be honest, I have seldom read anything so inspirational or so moving. This book recognises the complexity of human life, of faith and of reconciling tradition with choice. I also found it a fantastic insight into a world of religious observance that I did not know much about.
I’m extremely pleased I read this book and am sure this is one that will stay with me for years to come. Mr Deen - if you are reading this I have a lot of respect for you for making the choices you did. Thank you for telling the world about your experience.
