Rabbi Pruzansky’s mastery of the sources, both classic and modern, is breathtaking. His ability to integrate his teachings with contemporary life and challenges reflects his ongoing rabbinical experiences. I highly recommend the volume to all who value Torah in the modern world. — Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet Rothkoff
This may be one of the best single volume books on Judaism I have ever read. — Rabbi Matthew Hoffman
Jews traditionally approach the Days of Awe with a combination of excitement and trepidation. It is the time for judgment and repentance but also a season of renewal.
Repentance for Life explores eighteen different dimensions of repentance – as it relates to happiness, suffering, peace, children, tzedakah, free will, forgiveness, fear of sin, the World to Come, the hidden things in life, humility, the land of Israel, love of Jews, and many others.
Each chapter analyzes one of these facets of teshuvah and provides compelling and life-transforming insights into this most vital element of the Jewish personality.
Drawing from Rishonim, Chasidut, Vilna Gaon, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, and Rav Kook, as well as many secular sources, Repentance for Life is a goldmine for rabbis and educators who are preparing sermons, lecture series, and school curricula related to the High Holidays.
