In Pursuit of Peace




In Pursuit of Peace is a wellspring of information and insights on relationships culled from Biblical, Talmudic, and Kabbalistic sources. Deep concepts are presented in a format that make them accessible and relevant.

Whether you are looking for an approach to enhance your daily interpersonal connections, an engaging concept to share from the Torah portion, or concrete lessons to enrich your life, you will find what you are seeking in this clear and compelling guide to Torah relationships.

In this new volume of Rabbi Becker’s wonderful series of books bringing the wisdom of the Torah to daily life, he once again shows his gift for sharing practical and highly useful messages rooted in timeless Torah wisdom. Each essay can serve as a valuable springboard for sparking discussion. These highly readable and relatable essays convey important lessons on living a life imbued with wisdom about interpersonal relationships and enduring values. I highly recommend this book.
