As a senior lecturer and outreach expert with Gateways Seminars, Rabii Mordechai Becher has helped thousands of people reconnect with the beauty, wisdom, and relevance of their Jewish heritage.

    Great Guide for Torah in Business World

    This book provides "short and sweet" explanations of Jewish religious observance in the business world. It provides documented sources and is written in easy-to-understand sentences. The observances are broken down into simple steps and explained so that Jews and non-Jews alike can understand. Examples of the principles in practice are illustrated with an imaginary family. I was able to open the book at any point while riding a bus home from work and read a few pages at a time. The advice concerns practical considerations such as keeping kosher at business events and hair coverings for men and married women. I cannot put this book down! It is also a lovely gift for adults and teens.

    Gateway to Judaism - A lot More Then A Gateway !

    At last a book that not only is well researched and thorough , but also is an easy read - bridging the chasam between the layman and religous theology. While remaining true to traditional jewish philosophy , Becher doesn't forget the need to present religon to a modern world in an easy to understand easy to read format , all the while giving those already familiar with Judaism a book of scholarship worthy of study. A must read for someone who wants a true presentation of the mother of al religons!
