Jewish Values: Torah for Teens: Growing Up Spiritually with the Weekly Sidrah

Publication Year: 
Number of Pages: 
238 p.
Rabbi Cohen has compiled messages given in the Stanmore and Canons Park communities of London over the past 20 years. They are a “set of reflections, based on the weekly Torah portion, for young Jews in search of guidance, identity and ideals.” His book has six parts: one for each book of the Torah, and a section for special occasions, festivals, anniversaries, and interests. Rabbi Cohen asserts that there is much to learn from biblical personalities’ mistakes as well as their triumphs. He has also found the perfect tone: familiar and relevant enough for young people, yet scholarly and instructive without being pedantic. There are a few instances where the British colloquialisms are hard to understand but otherwise it is a valuable addition to any Jewish library.
