Meet the Author

Joseph Telushkin, named by Talk magazine as one of the 50 best speakers in the United States, is the author of Jewish Literacy: The Most Important Things to Know About the Jewish Religion, Its People and Its History, the most widely selling book on Judaism of the past two decades.

In 2006, Bell Tower/Crown published the first volume of his monumental work, A Code of Jewish Ethics: You Shall be Holy, a comprehensive presentation of Jewish teachings on personal character and integrity. Richard Joel, president of Yeshiva University, called the book, “a gift to humankind,” and Rabbi David Wolpe hailed it “as a remarkable guide to goodness.” In 2007, A Code of Jewish Ethics won the National Jewish Book Award and Volume 2 of the Code, subtitled, “Love Your Neighbor as Yourself” was published in 2009 to great acclaim. In September, 2010, Telushkin published Hillel: If Not Now, When? A biography of the great talmudic sage. Telushkin is currently writing a study of the life and impact of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Rabbi Telushkin was ordained at Yeshiva University in New York, and pursued graduate studies in Jewish history at Columbia University. He resides in New York City with his wife, Dvorah Menashe Telushkin, and they have four children. Telushkin lectures throughout the United States, serves as a Senior Associate of CLAL, and on the Board of Directors of the Jewish Book Council.

    highly recommend

    This is a short book by Telushkin; but well worth the read. I am a fan of Telushkin, and have enjoyed other books by him. The only problem with this one is it is very short. Except for the length, any fan of Telushkin will enjoy this read.
