The Jerusalem Post
In hundreds of illustrations dealing with a vast array of topics—Israel, God, Torah; life and death; truth and falsehood; good and evil; joy and sorrow; love and hatred; peace and war; the blessings of life (wealth, wisdom, soul, friends); man, woman, and family; biblical heroes and villains; and prophecies and predictions—the author conveys the major ideas of Judaism as they are expressed in the secrets built into simple Hebrew words.
Journal of Nietzsche Studies
A master teacher, Rabbi Blech opens the multifaceted treasures of the Hebrew language to the scholar and layman through his text. Using roots, gematria, and excerpts from biblical texts, the varied meanings of words are explained.
This is a master work for reading, for learning, as a major source of material for speeches. If your library is a busy one, you may need two copies, one for reference and the other for general use.
