Reviews

"Masterfully presented, Telushkin's straightforward opinions are supported by enlightening anecdotes drawn from the Bible, Talmud and Midrash as well as contemporary Jewish and non-Jewish thinkers. While this superlative compendium focuses on Jewish ethics, people of all faiths will find the precepts so unambiguously presented here to have significant value."
--Publishers Weekly

"Rabbi Joseph Telushkin has done it again! An amazing task, clarifying and elaborating upon the essential elements of Judaism. To present a most scholarly work in a reader-friendly -format is truly an achievement. This is a book that should be in every Jewish home."
--Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D., author of Do Unto Others

"An extraordinary work by one of the most knowledgeable and committed writers of our time. This twenty-first-century Jewish ethical master knows the texts of our tradition and, with wit and care, weaves together sources and stories, providing us with a powerful guide for action in today's world."
--Ruth W. Messinger, president, American Jewish World Service

"This stunning volume, filled with three thousand years of wisdom drawn from Judaism's holiest books and most insightful teachers, shows us the way to become kinder, more -perceptive, and more compassionate, no matter what our faith. Rabbi Telushkin's examples and anecdotes moved me to tears. It is, perhaps, the most important book for -everyone who cares about one of the most important issues we all face-how to become a more -loving person."
--Rabbi David Woznica, Stephen S. Wise Temple

"With psychological sensitivity and a personal warmth that radiates through the erudition of his pages, Rabbi Telushkin reveals the vast moral insights contained in the rabbinic -tradition. The abstract commandment to 'love one's neighbor as oneself' is brought down to earth in a web of compassionate moral dictates that bear witness to a civilization at a state of inspiring moral development. In doing justice to this arching achievement, this work itself achieves a moral grandeur."
--Rebecca Goldstein, MacArthur Fellow and author of Betraying Spinoza
