Young people need to be included in the struggle for meaning, for the right questions to ask and the search for useful and relevant answers. This is the book that has been missing from the ever-expanding bookshelf of Torah commentaries - a collection of messages on each Torah portion, specifically for today's teens. It shows them how each Torah portion contains worlds of meaning for them, for what they are going through in their lives and how they can shape their Jewish identity as they enter adulthood. Addressing the concerns of young adults, it shows how the Torah can help teens deal with issues including: Interpersonal relationships, social justice, sexuality and gender issues, personal ethics, responsibility to family, community and the jewish people, body image, tattoos, community service, the meaning of faith, authority and rebellion, the role of ritual, personal theology, prayer, civility, living safely, dealing with disabilities and challenges of eating morally. This groundbreaking spiritual resource is truly transdenominational- including the insights of over 100 Jews who identify as Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Reconstructionist, Renewal, post-denominational and "just Jewish." They are rabbis, cantors, teachers, authors and community leaders.
