By David Arnow

Dr. Arnow’s new release explores various sources of Jewish text and tradition that provide the primary sources for seeking hope in an ever changing world. The book considers nine sources including: Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), the Exodus, HaOlam HaBa (the World to Come), Israel, and Jewish Humor, among others.

Dr. Arnow provides fascinating and thoughtful insight as he offers a new interpretation of Jewish tradition. This work is certainly very timely given the state of the world as we seek a new normal through the pandemic and the attack on Ukraine’s sovereignty. Dr. Arnow’s book provides an excellent meditation for bringing hope into one’s life on an individualized level as well.

This is an excellent book I can see myself returning to regularly.

I’d like to thank Stuart Schnee for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
