They will find this volume particularly appealing as they seek to share their love of Judaism with their students. It is a wonderful text, highly appropriate both for post-confirmation and adult education courses, as well as for individuals who are interested in the traditional Jewish value system. The citations from Rabbinic texts and traditional commentaries, coupled with his own insights and those of modern thinkers provide the reader with a fine introduction to fundamental Jewish teachings and how they may be applied in our time.” -Dr. David L. Lieber, President Emeritus, Univ. of Judaism
