"To Life!" will awaken readers to the exuberance and enjoyment, the rewards and relevance of Judaism today.

"To Life!" is a book for everybody who had a bad Hebrew School experience as a child, for anyone who feels a need to fill the spiritual vacuum in his life, for the Christian who may suddenly find himself with a Jewish daughter-in-law and Jewish grandchildren, for the believer who wants to find out about the origins of his faith, and finally, for everyone who is seeking time tested answers to the spiritual issues that every human being has to face.

"To Life!" explores the ideas and visions of Judaism--explaining why prayer matters, how holiday observances and life-cycle events teach us to be human, why we follow the dietary laws, how we look at Christianity, and finally why the world needs committed Jews to make God's purposes come about. Both a practical and spiritual guide to the Jewish tradition, "To Life!" will lend new meaning to our days.
