Holiness and Nature by Rabbi Oury Cherki

On the Roots of Life

In this compelling book, Rabbi Cherki tackles a very broad spectrum of topics that pose both philosophical and practical challenges to 21st century Jews, ranging from our understanding of such seemingly un-modern concepts as yetzer ha-ra to grappling with the eternal question of free will and the contemporary question of how we teach the Bible in a scientific age or conceptualize the rise of new industries. The genius of the book lies in the way Rabbi Cherki unpacks each of these weighty, and often complex, topics with simplicity and clarity, offering his readers access to deep insights that can enrich their life with inspiration and meaning.
