Jews are converting to Buddhism. Lots of them. It's more than just a fad. Beliefnet has an interesting (if highly superficial) article about the so-called "JuBu" phenomenon.

I also recommend that you take a gander at Rodger Kamenetz's The Jew in the Lotus.

More in a bit. Gotta talk about Buddhist essentialism on Beliefnet, after all. I posted a little notice on the Beliefnet boards that I was going to write this essay; I already have at least one interesting reply.
