Author Rabbi Yaacov Haber’s short, to-the-point writing makes excellent use of your limited time. Eye-grabbing graphics at each chapter heading draw attention to the content they herald.
Days Six’s chapter entitled “Tiferet” exemplifies the author’s skill in the lines ” Tiferet is the product of a perfect balance of chesed and gevurah Draw people closer with your right or stronger hand! Train yourself to see the strengths of your companions even while pushing against their shortcomings As we ask God for His acceptance of us, we must internalize acceptance into our own relationships ”
A definition of the sefira infusing the day, instructions for utilizing that power, and insight into its spiritual relevance are nearly presented in clear, memorable language. The other nine days are presented in the same thought-provoking manner. They can improve your life.
Pack this powerful recreation of your personal history into a pocketbook, briefcase or personal library. The First Ten Days: A down to earth guide to the Days of Awe based on the Sefirot can guide your inner growth all year. An excellent resource for teaching the relevance of aseret yemei teshuva, it can help teachers with limited classroom time every holiday-interrupting Tishrei.
