    Must Read

    Rabbi Lau manages to tell about his life weaving in Torah philosphy, faith and trust. It is like you are with him during thses times and throughout his amazing life. I felt lifted up reading it.

    Wonderful! Touching and insightful

    This book by the former chief rabbi of Israel begins with Yisrael Lau's journey of seeing the Nazis rise to power in Poland and having his childhood completely destroyed to his arrival at the highest rabbinic post in Israel. After seeing his father murdered and being separated from his mother by age 7, he is left to fend for himself in the Buchenwald concentration camp with help from his 14 year old brother. Through the courage of his brother, kindness of strangers and Divine Providence, Yisrael Lau survives. After a short stay in an orphanage in France, he arrives in Palestine to begin his life anew. His story, told with insight, foresight and retrospective tells the story of an entire generation of Jews who witnessed the Holocaust, the establishment of the state of Israel three years later, the victory of the 6 Day War, the sadness of the Yom Kippur War (1973) and the shock of Yitzchak Rabin's assassination. The people he meets along his journey remind you of "Forest Gump", they range from Fidel Castro to Kareem Abdul Jabal, and his experiences are unforgettable.
