    Book summary:

    Here is a wealth of astute and warmhearted counsel on many of lifes most difficult ethical dilemmas. Joseph Telushkin outlines his ten commandments of character, explaining why each one is so vital, and then addresses perplexing issues that can and often do crop up in our lives relating to family, friends, work, community, medical ethics, and money, such as:

    " How honest should you be when you are asked to give a reference?
    " How much assistance should you give your son with his college application essay?
    " Is it wrong to receive a kidney from an executed prisoner in China?
    " What should you do if your father begs you to end his life rather than allow him to descend into the hell of Alzheimers?
    " Should a brother give up part of his inheritance if his sister has children and considerable expenses and he doesnt?
    " Should a dying woman reveal to her husband that their son is not really his?

    Many of us are finding it increasingly hard to tread the fine line between right and wrong. In The Ten Commandments of Character, Telushkin faces these issues squarely and shows us how to live a life of true integrity.

    At a time when so many people are looking for moral guidance, we are lucky to have Joseph Telushkin as our guide and teacher. I am thoroughly impressed by his wisdom and good sense.Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

    Book summary:

    From the bestselling authors of The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism comes a completely revised and updated edition of a modern classic that reflects the dangerous rise in antisemitism during the twenty-first century.

    The very word Jew continues to arouse passions as does no other religious, national, or political name. Why have Jews been the object of the most enduring and universal hatred in history? Why did Hitler consider murdering Jews more important than winning World War II? Why has the United Nations devoted more time to tiny Israel than to any other nation on earth?
    In this seminal study, Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin attempt to uncover and understand the roots of antisemitism -- from the ancient world to the Holocaust to the current crisis in the Middle East. This postmillennial edition of Why the Jews? offers new insights and unparalleled perspectives on some of the most recent, pressing developments in the contemporary world, including:

    " The replicating of Nazi antisemitism in the Arab world
    " The pervasive anti-Zionism/antisemitism on university campuses
    " The rise of antisemitism in Europe
    " Why the United States and Israel are linked in the minds of antisemites


    Clear, persuasive, and thought provoking, Why the Jews? is must reading for anyone who seeks to understand the unique role of the Jews in human history.
