    About Jewish Answers

    I am proud to have written JEWISH ANSWERS, and hope that it will provide assistance to those looking for answers to modern questions in Jewish life. I am a young Orthodox Rabbi and educator who has fielded questions from all over the world over the internet. In this book, I present many questions and answers, as well as a series of articles related to the Jewish Holidays and Religious Zionism. No topics are off limits...and you may just be surprised at some of the answers!
