"Every Day, Holy Day is about something that should concern us all: bettering ourselves spiritually."--The Chicago Jewish News
"An essential companion for anyone who wants to experience the life-changing gifts of Mussar. It is remarkably simple, and also remarkably effective in helping you overcome negative tendencies and strengthen positive ones--and to reveal your innate holiness in the process."--www.jewishgrowth.org "Packed with ideas that are well worth pondering. Taking the time, making the effort to be intentional about reading a new page each day, repeating the phrase, even singing it, and then taking action through the daily practice, is likely to be as transformative as Morinis hopes."--Atlanta Jewish-Times
