Moments of the Heart

Four Relationships Everyone Should Have to Live Wholeheartedly

A Transformative Story

Our heart is crucial to our existence. To stay sharp we need our brain, but without the heart pumping the blood, our brain may not function. Just as the heart has four chambers, this book is represented by four different types of relationships we experience: with oneself, with others, with the Creator, and with special and once-in-a-life time moments that define us, that give us the essence of who we are.

The chambers of this book have several entries, each introducing topics as they relate to Jewish thought and practice. These entries utilize Hebrew knowledge to dig deep, explore, and bring light to a concept. The book is enriched by word play and explanations of Hebrew roots.

At the end of each entry, a “Lev Moment” opportunity is introduced, where tools are offered to further explore your own experiences and thoughts.

Moments of the Heart was created because of a broken heart. It is now published with a healed heart. May this book strengthen and sustain your own heart.

“The book is very powerful and very beautiful. What I have read is passionate, very spiritual, and well-reasoned, three things that don’t  always go together.  I love your analysis of the word matzpun and its variety of related meanings,  and I was profoundly moved by the journey you took and how you came to write this book. Kol Ha-Kavod.”

Rabbi Joshua Stampfer

Rabbi Emeritus, Neveh Shalom

“I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking guidance and direction for improving one’s life by drawing on the wisdom found in the great texts of Judaism. This is a very thoughtful and insightful work of an Israeli-American which speaks directly from the heart.”

“This book is a beautiful balance between simplicity, wisdom, clarity, and joy. It touches the reader’s heart with humor and dare I say, love. Aspects of mystical Judaism along with inviting questions provide moments of reflection that slowly take the reader on a journey inward. Written in a lighthearted manner, the reader is taken on a journey examining their own life and discovering lessons learned and further ways of living a life “fully alive” and from the heart. An absolute delight!”
