Haazinu (Listen Up)by Yerachmiel Ben-Yishye
It started with a group therapy session. It grew into a journey for the truth and a quest to find the answer to an ancient Hebrew riddle…Dr. Caleb Call, a pediatric oncologist, was a newcomer to the group of friends and relatives of terminally-ill patients at the medical center. Led by a psychiatric social worker with his own shady past, the members of the group share their intensely intimate stories of their relationships with the dying patients, stories of love, despair, and hope. In their search for the answer to the question of why bad things happen to innocent people, they discover an ancient Hebrew riddle that sparks their journey for the truth – a journey that takes them to the Caribbean in search of an answer. A surprise ending compels the reader to realize that nothing in the stories is as it seems, and that the answer to their quest could bring health, peace, and prosperity to the world.

I just finished reading the book and absolutely loved it. I grew up in a non religious household and have been through some very difficult times. I have often asked why me and found many of the answers in this novel. Maybe the Jews have wandered and have forgotten to abide by what was written in the Bible. Maybe we need to search within ourselves and decide how to live our lives--being more adherant to the written law. It was quite thought provoking and I highly recommend the novel to others.
