Publisher Description

'To go from 'the oy to the joy', Aaron provides accessible, readable chapters. Each chapter asks a complex, theological question, and then proceeds to answer it simply and clearly, with personal anecdotes, analogies, and teachings from Jewish sources. Because Aaron himself grew up without a strong religious background, his empathetic insights strike a note resonant enough to reawaken the spiritual taste buds' - "Publishers Weekly".

Author Biography

Rabbi David Aaron, the son of a Holocaust survivor, has struggled since early youth to understand the world's potential for hatred and paradoxical yearning for meaning, love, and creativity. His own spiritual journey led him to Israel, where he studied Torah and Jewish mysticism under the tutelage of the great masters. He received his rabbinical ordination in 1979 from the Israel Torah Research Institute (Yeshivat ITRI). A popular lecturer in North America and a frequent guest on radio and TV, he is the founder and dean of Isralight , an international organization with programs throughout North America, South Africa, and Israel. He lives in Jerusalem with his wife, Chana, and their seven children and three grandchildren. For more information
