At the end of our days, the Talmud teaches, we will be asked questions about how we spent our time here in this world. Our answers to these questions will describe the way in which we lived, worked, loved, studied, and built a better tomorrow. How well we do on this final exam is determined by our choices today. In The Final Exam, Yeshiva University President and Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Dr. Ari Berman, presents the core Torah values that inspire a life of wisdom, contribution, and purpose through the powerful medium of personal letters. With penetrating analyses of foundational Jewish texts, the perspectives of his own teachers, and stories of his journey through and to Yeshiva University, Rabbi Berman offers a compelling, multi-valenced prism that honors Torah U-Madda as an educational philosophy while expanding it into a worldview that also embraces truth, dignity, and compassion. He encourages his readers to integrate these values into a life of faith and religious integrity that sets as its goal a path to redemption.
