You’re offered a three-month total exemption from Torah. No positive or negative commandment would apply. No Torah ethics would matter. You’re given a chance to do whatever you want — with no limits, restrictions or consequences. Would you take it?
What if, instead of an exemption from mitzvos, the offer was for a complete exemption from the need to eat. For three months, you wouldn’t have to eat a thing. But you also wouldn’t enjoy any food. Would you take it?
Torah’s truth is unassailable, yet many Jews from observant homes lack clarity in their emunah. Could things be different? What would life be like if we lived in the “emunah reality”? Rabbi Moshe Goldstein, shlita, has been one of the most fascinating, original, and effective educators in Israel for decades. A greatly respected Rosh Yeshiva, his amazing warmth and legendary shiurim have helped thousands of young people choose to stay frum — and lead happier lives. In this powerful volume, for the first time, his unique approach has been adapted for English-speaking audiences.
About Rabbi Moshe Goldstein
Rabbi Moshe Goldstein, shlita, founded Yeshivas Shaarei Yosher in Jerusalem over thirty-five years ago and remains at its helm to this day. Shaarei Yosher was the first yeshiva in Israel to address the needs of young men seeking Torah inspiration and emunah — even those who had abandoned Torah observance. With great warmth, far-reaching insight, and an innovative approach, Rav Goldstein has helped thousands of students return to living a renewed and inspired life of Torah and emunah. Rav Goldstein studied at Yeshivas Ponevezh for over a decade and is a disciple of Rav Yechezkel Levenstein, zt”l, who was a pillar of emunah in the post-Holocaust generation. Rav Goldstein is the author of many highly regarded Torah works.
