Teshuvah: A Guide for the Newly Observant Jew


The authors voice is quite gentle and reassuring throughout this text, both encouraging and admonishing the reader to take on more. The first half of the 188 page book describes how you should approach being observant, the second half deals with certain aspects Jewish life. This text is written for the general Jewish audience it is not a “messianic” text in the sense that it deals with Yeshua as Messiah.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, best known for his work on the Talmud, brings the reader a very clear picture of what being observance means and looks like. This is very much a how to, but does not read like a dry manual. The author paints a beautiful picture of living the Jewish lifestyle.

I am sure I could go on, but I think the text stands for itself, you should pick up a copy. Whether you have been raised in the faith or are returning to the Torah, this book should be in your library.
