CRITICAL ACCLAIM
"Einstein is reputed to have said, 'Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.' In clear precise language, Rabbis Goldstein and Seligson, two ardent and profound students of Chassidut, convey a great deal of valuable information about Judaism--and do so on page after page. The reader will learn a lot, and no less important, have a wonderful time while doing so." -Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of "Rebbe" and "Jewish Literacy"

"A wonderful resource for every Jewish home. The breadth of subjects treated in this deceptively small, yet masterful work is simply staggering!" -Rabbi Shais Taub, acclaimed Chassidic mentor, author, and teacher of Jewish mysticism.

Sections include:
Creation
Torah & Mitzvot
Torah Study
Chabad Chassidut

A very orthodontist view of Jewish life

The first chapter, explains why creationism is wrong and only the Torah is right. Which might not be the best way to grab the reader’s attention. I’m still on it but it is very conservative way to introduce the topic.
