  • 1 thought on “The Second Jewish Book of WHY”

    1. Rabbi Kolatch's question books are incredibly useful as it goes into both the "how" and "why," although in a very direct in answering them and often Kolatch's real "richness" comes in the footnotes for his answers. Kolatch is also incredibly readable--while not necessarily literary--it also doesn't read like a religious user's manual.

    2. I am Jewish, and this book answers for me questions I did not know I had! It is a go to book for people like me. 10 years ago when my grandmother died, I was put in the role of eldest female, as my mom had predeceased her. My fiance, not Jewish, read to me long distance so that I could give my gram the respect she deserved as an observant Jewish woman. This one stays on the shelf!

    3. A great source of info told from an Orthodox perspective but with respectful commentary where Orthodox breaks with the other movements.
