Brand New. Paperback. Brand new, not a used item. Please no orders from Tennessee. The best-selling author of Kitchen Table Wisdom continues her examination of the human heart, celebrating those who serve life so beautifully, effortlessly, selflessly, often without knowing. It was her grandfather, a kabbalistic rabbi, who gave her the eyes to see that service is what heals our isolation and loneliness. These stories give a profound sense of strength, achieved by knowing that we belong to each other and to life itself.
The author recounts the small and large things she learned from her grandfather. Very instructive and entertaining at the same time.
