Praise for Tough Questions Jews Ask

“I wish I had this book when I was young. I’m grateful that the b’nei mitzvah and their parents in my congregation have it now. Rabbi Feinstein responds to the tough questions thoughtful Jewish teenagers ask with wisdom, humor, gentleness, and insight.”
Rabbi Laura Geller, senior rabbi, Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, California
“In this remarkable book Rabbi Feinstein asks all the tough questions and gives them thoughtful, important, and often surprising answers. I will keep it by my desk; every Jewish parent seeking answers should do the same.”
Rabbi David Wolpe, Sinai Temple, Los Angeles, California;
Teaching Your Children About God
“Rabbi Feinstein takes us through those ‘keep-you-up-at-night’ questions—and he does so with wit and depth. This is the best theology book for young people that I have read in a long time. It will be must-reading for confirmation classes and Hebrew high school. What a treasure!”
Rabbi Jeffrey Salkin, author, Putting God on the Guest List: How to Reclaim the Spiritual Meaning of Your Child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah; For Kids—Putting God on Your Guest List: How to Claim the Spiritual Meaning of Your Bar or Bat Mitzvah
“Rabbi Feinstein is a gifted listener, a Baal shelah, a master of the question. He is sensitive to the multiple intelligences of the inquirer and in answering, raises the dignity of the questioner. This lucid and accessible work is not for young adults alone; it is an empathetic guide to the parents of the perplexed.”
Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, author, For Those Who Can’t Believe
“A masterpiece in Jewish education. It offers new and powerful insights without pretending to provide the solution for the questions that in reality ought to always accompany a thoughtful Jewish life. Ed Feinstein is a master educator and he has written a book that is a gift for teenagers and adults alike.”
Rabbi Donniel Hartman, co-director, Shalom Hartman Institute, Jerusalem
