Only just ordered this from Amazon, but the preview looks great -

The Book of Jewish Values: A Day-by-Day Guide to Ethical Living by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.

I'm sure I have this book somewhere on my shelves, but I cannot find it.

You cannot go wrong with Telushkin.

Please let us know how you like it!

The Telushkin book is extremely good. It's written in 365 short sections, which I'm reading one-a-day, and then rereading and thinking more about on Shabbat.

As a Jewish beginner (see the next post) I'm really learning a lot.

I love books where you can read one little (but powerful) tidbit each day.

Another great, easy read - Small Miracles for the Jewish Heart

Just amazing stories - each one makes up its own chapter. The only problem with this book is that you won't read just one story - you may not be able to put it down until you reach the end.

Here is my latest read:

The God Upgrade: Finding Your 21st Century Spirituality in Judaism's 5000-Year Old Tradition

Have you read it? What did you think?
