Can a heart sleep? More important, can it wake up?
The thousands of readers who have grown to love Rabbi Binyomin Pruzansky's bestselling Stories for the Jewish Heart series know that the answer is yes. Hearts that are dozing can be inspired and spirits that are half-asleep can be roused. And often, all it takes is the right story.
Stories That Awaken the Heart is a wonderful collection of stories that will do just that - awaken our hearts and rejuvenate our spirits. In these pages we meet all kinds of people facing many different challenges - wake-up calls for their own Jewish hearts. A combat soldier facing imminent death, a gas station attendant with a grudge that threatens a youngster's life, a deep-sea diver lost beneath the ocean with only four minutes of oxygen left - each of the dozens of memorable characters in these true stories has a moment when he can choose to hear Hashem's call.
Like all good stories, these tales are entertaining and inspiring. But more: with Rabbi Pruzansky's sensitive understanding of human nature and the Torah insights that mark his every word, these are stories that can transform us. And awaken our sleepy hearts.
