The veracity of Judaism is always being challenged in every age, in every culture. So what is Judaism s response?

First published in 1836, The Nineteen Letters a written correspondence between a Rabbi and a student in doubt as to the meaning and value of his Jewish identity - remains as relevant today as when it first appeared.

In upholding the tenets of Judaism, the author tackles the issues of assimilation, secularism, modernity, reform, and the difference between a self-centered world-view vs. a God-centered world-view.

Grounded in history and tradition, and spanning the theological, philosophical, and the practical, the author shows how a life steeped in adherence to Divine commands leads to an uplifting experience of profound meaning and personal fulfillment.

This enduring classic now includes an in-depth, contemporary commentary, and the result is an inspiring guide to a renewed appreciation of Judaism: both a brilliant portrayal of the Torah s timeless teachings and a unique presentation of its relevance in our own day and age.
