This major contribution to modern biblical commentary addresses the most important concerns of modern men--issues like relationships, sexuality, ambition, work and career, body image, aging, and life passages--by opening them up to the messages of the Torah. It includes commentaries by some of the most creative and influential rabbis, cantors, journalists, media figures, educators, professors, authors, communal leaders, and musicians in contemporary Jewish life, and represents all denominations in Judaism. Featuring poignant and probing reflections on the weekly Torah portions, this collection shows men how the messages of the Torah intersect with their own lives by focusing on modern men's issues.
