Overview

Wake up to the divine abundance that is all around you!

This inspirational companion helps you recognize God’s gifts in the everyday world around you. For each day of the year, an inspiring quote from a Jewish source and a personal reflection on it help you focus on your spiritual life and all the things you have to be grateful for.

Using both the secular and Jewish calendar as a framework, this daily devotional helps you honor the special and holy events of the year as well as identify the sacred in the mundane moments of your life. It draws on the wisdom of Jewish sources and teachings, and ancient and contemporary spiritual thinkers, to gain perspective on the abundance that is all around you—in your achievements and challenges, relationships and personal time, joy and suffering, job and home. It will help you elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary every day of the year.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Rabbi Olitzky (executive director, Jewish Outreach Inst.; Jewish Holidays: A Brief Introduction for Christians) here provides a kind of follow-up to his Sacred Intentions and Restful Reflections. Like many of Olitzky's writings, half-directed at the non-Jewish reader and indeed keyed not to the Jewish but the Julio-Gregorian calendar, it is rich in epigraphs from Hebrew Scripture and Jewish writers but rather light on Hebrew and Jewish history. His book should be warmly received by most Jewish congregations and readers, as well as interested non-Jewish readers.
