In Oros HaTeshuvah (Chapter 3), Rav Kook, zt”l, describes the healing powers of teshuvah: “A Light of acceptance begins to shine. His eyes are filled with a holy fire, his heart is entirely immersed in streams of delight. Holiness and purity hover above him. Infinite love fills his entire being.” It is the light of acceptance that shines from every page of this marvelous and practical manual of return.
Harav Moshe Weinberger
Giving structure to the chaotic terrain of the soul/body relationship, this work offers hope to the hopeless and power to the powerless. To tame the body, to recover its essential foundation hidden under layers of shame and despair, our author leads us down a path of soft healing and irreducible hope.
Rav Joey Rosenfeld
Some books are good reads, some books are enlightening, some books are eye-opening, some books inspire, while some books cause us to reach deep down and cleanse our inner selves. Acceptance is all of the above.
Rav Aryeh Cohen
By reading and internalizing the words of this book, one will become a better version of themselves, find healing and growth, and ultimately live a life that is forward thinking and meaningful.
