The secret of living a fuller, richer life can be revealed in three words: GIVE LIFE MEANING. And the secret of finding meaning in life can be found in two words: KIDDUSH HASHEM.
In his first book, Living Kiddush Hashem, Rabbi Shraga Freedman explored the many dimensions of Kiddush Hashem, of sanctifying Hashem's Name through our everyday actions and efforts. Since its publication, many readers have shared that the concept of making Kiddush Hashem a core of their "mission statement" has enriched and often transformed their lives.
In A Life Worth Living, Rabbi Freedman shows us even more clearly how making a Kiddush Hashem can, and should, frame our every action. Showing empathy and gratitude in our interactions or integrity in our business dealings are not just “nice” things to do, they are an integral part of Kiddush Hashem. Even driving (and parking!) with concern and care for others takes on a whole new meaning when we put Kiddush Hashem into our consciousness.
A Life Worth Living is designed to make the spiritual concepts of Kiddush Hashem relatable, practical, and doable. It includes hundreds of stories of Jews, from gedolim to grocers, from the famous to "people just like us," who sanctified Hashem's Name in either dramatic encounters or just plain day-to-day life. Every section includes "Takeaways,""Making it Practical"tips," Discussion Points," to help bring the concepts into daily life.
We all want to live well. A Life Worth Living shows us how.
