Everyone needs wisdom for living. Understanding ourselves, connecting with our souls, controlling emotions, using the physical world positively, living with truth and reaching inner peace - are some of the important and life-changing ideas that are discussed and explained in Living a Deeply Insightful Life. In this new presentation by Rabbi Chaim Willis, the depth of the 48 Ways (based on Ethics of the Fathers 6:6) is fully explained in a way that can be appreciated by any person at any level of Jewish knowledge.
''Rabbi Noach Weinberg zl''l's 48 Ways to Wisdom is a comprehensive guide to mastering Torah, and life in general. As one of Rav Noach's closest students, Rabbi Willis absorbed every word and made it his life. I am confident that his rendition of the 48 Ways will serve to change the lives of all those who read it, observant or non-observant, young and old.'' --From the haskama of Rabbi Yitzchak Berkovits, Rosh HaYeshiva of Aish Haotrah Jeruslaem
About the Author
The son of a New York City police lieutenant, Rabbi Chaim Willis grew up in a liberal Jewish home. He received a BA in Chinese from the University of Michigan and then went on to pursue his interests in world affairs and journalism, travelling to India, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Iran, Syria, Jordan, and eventually Israel. While at the Western Wall he was offered an opportunity to meet a truly wise man, Rabbi Noach Weinberg. Impacted by Rabbi Weinberg's deep Jewish wisdom, Rabbi Willis chose to explore Jewish ideas at Aish Hatorah, delving into the original sources of both Jewish thought and practice. It was there that he became an Orthodox Jew, received rabbinical ordination, and joined Aish Hatorah's fight against the rise of assimilation in the Jewish world. In 1979 Rabbi Willis co-founded the first Aish Hatorah branch in the United States, in St. Louis, Missouri. He is currently the executive director of Aish South Africa in Johannesburg. Under his direction and leadership, thousands of young South African Jews have been inspired to explore and reconnect with their Jewishness and the Jewish people.
