Central to the life of the Jewish family is the time they spend together around the Shabbos and Yom Tov table -- a warm and convivial setting that invites conversation and the exchange of thoughts and ideas. Yet words alone do not make for an elevated Shabbos experience; when the discussion around the table is mundane and inconsequential, the experience is rendered similarly meaningless. But when the table talk is enhanced by Torah ideas that can be applied to daily life, then even the most simple meal becomes a vehicle for personal growth and transformation.
The power of the Torah to change lives is a concept that the authors of an extraordinary new collection of essays,Torah for Your Table, understand well. Through their work for Hineini -- the pioneering Jewish outreach organization founded and headed by their mother, renowned author and lecturerRebbetzin Esther Jungreis-- Rabbis Yisroel and Osher Anshel Jungreis have personally witnessed and played a role in the spiritual renewal of tens of thousands of Jewishneshomos.With their new book, the authors continue their holy mission to bring Torah to Jews; wherever they are and whatever their level of observance,Torah for Your Tablespeaks to one and all.
Compiled by Rebbetzin Jungreis, who knows from vast personal experience how Torah words can elevate every heart and penetrate even the most distant Jewish neshama, these beautifully crafted essays on the weekly Torah portions lend timeless relevance to our lives. But it is not only around the Shabbos table that this book can make a difference. Its wisdom is applicable in every setting -- in one's own home or at formal or informal gatherings.
Whether you are a newcomer to Torah thought or have dedicated many years to its study,Torah for Your Tablewill enhance the flavor of your every meal.
