    We read this for the synagogue book club this time It's a uick read consisting of Israel's essays on various peculiarities of modern Jewish life Israel's writing style is a little to directive for me He seems just like the kind of Rabbi I would not want in my synagogue a little sanctimonious and superior Given how he holds forth on halacha Jewish law I was surprised to learn at the end of the book that he was raised as a Reform Jew in a synagogue that held shabbat and all the holidays on Sunday He didn't become observant until later in life There were some good essays towards the end of the book when he started talking about his own interests beekeeping and running Because he wasnt trying to tell us how to behave he relaxed and wrote some interesting stories
