Three Times Chai: 54 Rabbis Tell Their Favorite Stories
Fifty-four rabbis, from all branches of Judaism, tell their favorite stories--classic Bible stories, rabbinic and modern commentaries, folktales, and legends. Each story, ranging in length from one to seven pages, reflects a Jewish ideal or value and is told in the individual rabbi's unique speaking style. Each concludes with a note from the contributor explaining the story's lesson and why it is the rabbi's favorite.
The book is divided into four sections:
Section One: Community -- Stories about relationships, tzedakah, and tikun olam, our responsibility to heal the world
Section Two: Religion -- Stories about Jewish identity, practices, and spirituality
Section Three: God's World --Stories about the ways in which we relate to God and live according to God's plan
Section Four: Outlook -- Stories about our attitudes, choices, and quests for truth, honesty, wisdom, and courage
