Thinking About What Really Matters in Life
Friends, family, love, god, death, faith.
These are deceptively simple words that we use all the time. But do we know what we mean by these important words? Do we know what other people mean when they use them? Because we seldom pause to reflect on these words, we misunderstand others and they misunderstand us.
Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz explores some of the meanings of these powerful words that are so central to our lives. He challenges us to think deeply about the connotations of these commonplace words, an in so doing, to see that there may be other ways of looking at things we have taken for granted all our lives. Steinsaltz summarizes a lifetime of spiritual wisdom that will enrich our lives and open us to better and deeper communication with others. This is a thought-provoking-and surprising-adventure that may change the way we think, speak, and act.
