In the aftermath of 9/11, Rabbi Sheldon Lewis sought solace and a path to reconciliation in Jewish texts.
Peacemaking is arguably the key pillar among Jewish values, and Torah of Reconciliation seeks to reveal this primary value in diverse scriptural and rabbinical texts.
Following the annual cycle of Torah readings, thematic verses or passages are interpreted and expanded through the lens of rabbinic commentary and the author s personal reflections, revealing the rich, wise resources available in Judaism for the crucial task of peacemaking in the modern world.
