Reviews

This beautiful book is an exhilarating hybrid, steeped in traditional learning but at home in the modern world, centered on universal questions and yet deeply personal, informed by theology and philosophy and yet guided quite humbly by the challenge of living each day with wisdom and kindness. Jonathan Rosen, author of The Talmud and the Internet
When a great and capacious mind, blessed with sensibility and sensitivity, engages in conversation with the timeless texts of Torah, the result is both enlightening and enthralling. That is what William Kolbrener's new book represents, and all whose Judaism is reflective and thoughtful will be enlarged by it. Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
William Kolbrener is adept at finding Torah in places where you don't expect it and at finding the unanticipated in the Torah. This is a book for people who want help listening for the elusive, important silences that course beneath the clamor of everyday life. Judith Shulevitz, author of The Sabbath World
