Creating an Ethical Jewish Life by Byron L. Sherwin
Book Description"Ethics" may sound like an abstract concept more suited to dusty halls of academia than day-to-day life. But a closer look at the Jewish ethical literature - era-spanning classics like THE PATH OF THE UPRIGHT by Moshe Hayyim Luzzatto and DUTIES OF THE HEART by Bahya ibn Pakudah - puts that misconception to rest and provides a compelling action plan for living ethically. In an accessible and highly readable fashion, this one-of-a-kind book introduces the genre of Jewish ethical literature and, with excerpts from the texts themselves, shows what it means to be truly Jewish in your work life, relationships, parenting, play, relationship with God, death and everything in between. Originally published as HOW TO BE A JEW.
