An Approach for Obtaining Happiness and Meaning Based on the Principles of Torah
A survivor of the holocaust, Rabbi Ezriel Tauber learned about the value of life at a young age. Captivating audiences of all types world-wide for many years, he has used his profound yet pragmatic understanding of life to help others reaffirm or rediscover their love of life. Choose Life!
is a book based on his many years of experience, scholarship, counseling and lecturing. It is a stimulating reading and learning experience which above all asserts the beauty and centrality of life.
"I place before you life and death, blessing and curse - choose life! so that you and your descendants shall live" (Devarim 30:19).
What is life? Why would anyone have to choose it? Do I really believe that a moment of life is priceless?
What is happiness? Is it really attainable? Are happiness and enjoyment the same thing?
Who am I? What does G-d want from me? What do I want from me?
The true poverty of today's world is that so many people do not know how to answer questions like these. Many more do not even know enough to ask. And there is nothing as irrelevant as an answer without a question.
is therefore more than a book of answers. It arouses the curiosity to ask questions - questions which lead one to grapple with the fundamental principles of life, principles from which love, happiness and everything good sprouts.
Read it! Enjoy it! Grow from it!
