Praise for the Book
“Great book-I am struck by its profound and pervasive humility. As someone stationed at the helm of a complex network of educational institutions, I find great wisdom in the belief that “passionate, dedicated leaders understand that every aspect of a kodesh operation, no matter how mundane, is really subsumed under the heading of a spiritual concern.”
“This was truly one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. It also is the only book I read cover to cover in one sitting. Rabbi Dovid Cohen truly hits the nail on the head in a pragmatic and meaningful way. look forward to his future books as this one is a keeper!”
I heartily recommend this insightful and thought-provoking book. Rabbi Dovid M. Cohen takes us along a fascinating journey through his personal experiences in the rabbinate and deals with some challenging situations with which many individuals and families will readily identify. His lively style of narrative and mastery of an impressive range of Jewish sources will deepen faith and inspire and motivate many readers.
Rabbi Dovid M. Cohen has written the orthodox Jewish version of A Prairie Home Companion, with New York’s Upper West Side as Lake Wobegon. This entertaining and illuminating volume shares life lessons and rabbinic answers to human dilemmas with a mix of humor, sadness and seriousness. It is serious and enjoyable, a nice read.
The intelligent, honest, and sincere voice of my dear friend Rabbi Dovid M. Cohen, pierces through the cloudy confusion of our times. Study and savor this marvelous collection of essays and personal reflections. This is a touching and engaging work!”
