The Person in the Parasha, Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Weinreb’s compilation of essays based on his highly popular column of the same name, offers the unique point of view of a world-renowned Torah scholar, community rabbi, and clinical psychotherapist. Each essay begins with an interest & shying anecdote which the author then connects to a central theme in the parasha, and wraps up with a profound message of inspiration and wisdom for life and spiritual growth.
The Person in the Parasha offers a creative and original look at each of the weekly Torah readings, addressing a wide spectrum of human emotions and topics – optimism, grief, integrity, bullying, conformity, envy, aging, parenting, and much more. In this work, Rabbi Weinreb brings the biblical personalities to life, focusing on what motivates them and how we can best emulate their positive traits in our own lives. Based on prolific knowledge of Torah, literature and decades of experience dealing with interpersonal relationships, Rabbi Weinreb offers guidance for daily life – its challenges, struggles, and joys alike.
