"This book explains how so many of the health decisions we need to make in the contemporary world are tied to our ancient texts and traditions. Full of wisdom and insights, this book belongs in every Jewish home–no matter how young or old you are, and not matter if you live alone or with others. Written in an easy to read format, this book invites you to pick out a chunk and contemplate what it says, and then to choose another chunk whenever you are ready."
