How to bring the power and passion of Torah into our homes, our children - and ourselves
From the practical... to the poignant...to the profound
The Balancing Act is a book of the questions we have, and the answers we need. They come from men and women, old and young, newly religious and scions of generations of observant Jews. They range from the practical - How old should a child be before bringing him to shul? - to the poignant - How can I deal with my friend's off-the-derech son? - to the profound - What does it mean to really love Hashem?
Over the years, Rebbetzin Tziporah Heller has answered thousands of questions through her Q + A feature on the Jewish website Naaleh.com. Her answers combine extensive Torah scholarship with a practical, down-to-earth understanding of human nature.
The Balancing Act collects more than 250 of these questions and answers. Each q + a is thought-provoking; together, they help us bring the wisdom of Torah and its commentators into our own world, infusing our lives with new meaning and with a greater, more sincere and honest passion for Torah, mitzvahs, and our Creator.
