Passed down through generations, the insights of a renowned Hasidic master from a tiny Polish shtetl. Whoever believes in miracles is an imbecile. Whoever does not is an atheist. Rabbi Menahem Mendl was the spiritual leader of the Jews in a small village called Kotzk in a corner of Poland. Yet he became so famous that the wise sayings of "the Kotzker"-about human nature, how to live, and the world of the spirit-were repeated and passed around. He kept no records-but his words were savored, and survived through the years. Now they are preserved in this book, which gathers them together and joins them with elegant cut-paper illustrations by the rabbi's great-great-great-grandson, the illustrator Gabriel Lisowki, who has also provided an introduction about his ancestor. Jewish Wisdom for Daily Life is a treasure for spiritual seekers or anyone who enjoys life's lessons distilled into trenchant and memorable aphoristic gems.
