[Book Review] Pearls For the Shabbos Table

Wednesday, 13 May, 2009 - 2:00 pm

nf_0406_53093.jpgIn Pearls For the Shabbos Table, by Rabbi Yosef Y. Alperowitz, co-director of Chabad Lubavitch of Bournemouth, the title doesn't lie.

Like real life precious pearls, shining ideas are compiled from the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson of blessed memory, and condensed into approximately 1500 letters on two pages.

A collection of thoughts on the weekly Torah portions and Jewish festivals, the 158 page book should stir the minds of anyone gathered for a Shabbos or Yom Tov meal.

As written on the back cover, its easy-to-read style is designed to be accessible to children as well as adults, while its powerful messages are sure to inspire deeper discussion even among the more seasoned scholars.

The author's experience as a Chabad emissary - co-directing Chabad Lubavitch of Bournemouth with his wife Chanie Alperowitz - makes this book a perfect source for an off-the-cuff Torah thought for those running a Chabad House or for people in their own homes.
