Rabbi David Aaron has written a psychologically insightful and spiritually uplifting book about the faith of Judaism.
He does not duck any of the hard questions, offers no platitudes or fantasies and strives to reveal the essence of life and hence of Judaism as well.
It is in my opinion the ultimate self-help book. It strips us bare, cleanses us of our illusions and prejudices and allows us to view ourselves in a cleaner and more intense light. The rabbis of the Talmud declared that ultimate joy stems from resolving one’s doubts about life and self. Rabbi Aaron’s book will help any of its readers to do so.
This book is not about Judaism. It is Judaism itself.
The Torah itself declares itself to be “the book of humankind.” Rabbi Aaron shows us how brilliantly accurate this description of Torah and Judaism really is.
The book is entitled “Living a Joyous Life.” It is truly a joy to read – clear, incisive, inspiring, witty and entertaining.
