The people here represent the rabbinate as the hard-to-define, impossible-to-categorize world that it is. Included are rabbis who are fixtures on talk shows, serious authors, scholars, the first woman rabbi, and the first Ethiopian rabbi. Their stories, in terms of their coming to grips with their spirituality and their Judaism, are brilliantly articulated, filling the book with inspirational messages and spiritual guidance for people of all faiths.

Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky is not the successor of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, that is a big mistake. The emmissaries are the Rebbe's, and his alone. That is the only thing wrong about the book. Otherwise, it was a great and interesting read. cudos!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

What an absolutely beautiful book! I'm buying it for my older brother. It's outstanding in its diversity---one of the few "places" where all Jewish denominations come together without argument. An elegant coffee table book. ( How about a little bagel and cream cheese with that coffee?? )Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
