''Rabbi Kaplan's blogs are a must read. He takes contemporary issues and relates them to Talmudic teachings, making them relevant to Jews and non-Jews alike.''

''In this book, Rabbi Shmuel Kaplan shows how an authentic Jewish approach allows us to find meaning in every aspect of our lives and the world in which we live. He brings a sensible Torah perspective to the issues that we all face and demonstrates beautifully how Judaism enables us to uncover the divine presence in so much of our daily lives and be inspired by it. It has valuable lessons for all of us!''
Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at New York University and director of the Global Network for Advanced Research in Jewish Studies
