Weinstock combines many attributes. He has good taste. He has an ear for language and an instinct for message. He knows what touches the soul and, most important, what can inspire the reader to seek spiritual elevation. These are stories with messages, stories that reach for higher realms and take the reader with them. The author comes from a Chassidic background and he is a student of Brisk -- a combination that provides a unique blend of passion and incisiveness that makes reading this book an even more enriching experience. This is a book that captures the wealth of our heritage. It is an enchanting read!
