The Human Challenge : Being Jewish in the 21st Century by Rabbi Avraham Edelstein
Every human being is presented with the ”human challenge”:
How do I grow?
How do I become wise?
How do I sanctify the world around me and make it a better place?
How do I work on my character?
How do I integrate work and food and intimacy into my life’s goals?
This volume is an attempt to answer these questions for the intelligent and sensitive adult reader. It draws significantly on deeper Jewish thought, balancing brevity with profundity. The Human Challenge provides a rich and exciting entry point for those who are at the early stages of their relationship with Judaism as well as a significant benefit to those with an extensive background, as it provides a methodical and sourced overview of topics that may otherwise remain as fragmented insights.
