Rabbi Raphael Pelcovitz is one of the crown jewels of the American rabbinate. During his long and successful career, he has taught, guided, and inspired thousands of men, women, and children. He once described his own teacher as a person who personified the depths of simplicity. The same term can be applied to him. In Rabbi Pelcovitzs brilliant formulations, the most complex ideas are compelling and comprehensible. He makes learning an enticing challenge, a pleasure and an adventure.
In this new book, Rabbi Pelcovitz offers a lifetime of learning and ideas on the weekly Torah readings. He shares with us his unusual ability to relate the thoughts of the Sages and commentators -- including his own insights -- to our everyday concerns. Indeed the Torah is eternal and always relevant, and this is a book that proves it.
As its title implies, Table Talk is meant to stimulate discussion. It takes a theme, expresses it, relates it, and embellishes it. Its for the Sabbath table, for an interesting afternoon stroll, for a study group -- or just for informative and provocative reading.
Join Rabbi Pelcovitz as he analyzes concepts under the lens of wisdom and experience and learning. His writing is crisp, his mood is amiable, his mind is nimble, his message is clear and to the point.
Bottom line? This is a book to enjoy and to share. It will lend spice to any table -- and mind.
