    The classics are just what the name suggests for a reason. Rav Hirschs wisdom is as critical to raising a thinking Jew today as it was when he wrote it.

    Ignore this Sefer at your peril. When your children ask you questions you don't know the answer too, or worse yet, don't bother to ask at all and assume that their ancestors sacrificed everything for nothing, it will be to late to familiarize yourself, and them, with the knowledge that could have not just prevented their desertion, but given them, and you, a life of meaning and blessing

    Rav Hirsch is always excellent and this translation is easier to read than the previous edition. This is a book which should be read by every Jew in order to get a full idea of what it means to be Jewish. It should be taught in every Jewish school to children when they get to about the age of 10 or 12. As by then they should be able to understand the concepts. If you have not read this book, it is a must.
