Changing the World – and Yourself! – Through Proper Use of Respect, Self-Esteem and Honor
The word “kavod” generally conjures up negative connotations in most people’s minds. But is it really so? After all, it has been said that without kavod, the world would cease to exist! Rabbi Moshe Don Kestenbaum, popular columnist, author, and mechanech, takes us on a journey into the world of kavod to demonstrate the positive aspects of this most misunderstood term, as well as its pitfalls. In engaging and often humorous style, appropriate for both adults and teenagers, he guides us with practical advice on how to improve our lives, and the lives of others around us, through the proper implementation of “kavod ha’adam.
A sampling of topics include:
- Self-Kavod (self-respect, or self-esteem)
- Healthy vs. Unhealthy Self-Kavod
- External Kavod (honor shown to us by others)
- Giving Kavod
- Treating Others with Respect
- Giving Compliments
- Kavod in Marriage
- Kavod Between Parents and Children
- Kavod Between Teachers and Students
After reading this book, you will see that running after (the right) kavod certainly has the power to change the world, and yourself! Harness this incredible energy, and start your sprint toward the finish line!
