A Holiday For Nonbelievers

Description:

Life seems to be filled with enough challenges to spin the head, douse the spirits, and make otherwise sensible people think that the world is against them. It’s usually not, but how do you convince the “victim”? How do you determine what’s right, what’s wrong, and what’s the way to make things better?

Rabbi Yisroel Miller is a laser beam of sanity. In his earlier books, What’s Wrong with Being Happy? and What’s Wrong With Being Human?, he took dead aim on the enemies of joy and equilibrium, and helped improve lots of lives in the process. He did it with liberal dashes of Torah knowledge, insight, perspective, wit, eloquence, and common sense.

In his new book, Rabbi Miller’s springboard is the festival cycle. He delves into the lessons of Pesach, Shavuos, Succos, Chanukah, and Purim, and shows how they have things to say to everyone, every day.

Crammed with anecdotes and humor, the book bolsters sagging egos and punctures pretentiousness. Most of all, Rabbi Miller has an uncanny ability to cut to the heart of a problem, to enable his listeners and readers to attain new levels of understanding, and to help them define their strengths and goals. And he does so while showing how the Torah speaks to everyone and every situation.

One reads this book with interest and a smile. One puts it down reluctantly -- and with the feeling that it’s as fine a Gift for Yom Tov as one has ever received!
