Authored by Rabbi David Samson and edited by Hollywood screen writer Tzvi Fishman, Ask the Rabbi answers 68 of today's toughest practical questions in a straightforward, easy-to-read style. This book is a must read for Jews in Israel and abroad, and particularly for Arutz-7 Readers.

Samples of responsa from the book:
  • A man who is becoming more religious and wants to move to Israel, but his wife and family resist - asks, "In the conflict between my love of Israel, G-d and love of family, who should win?"
  • Recently, classes in Kaballah have started in our community. But my local Rabbi says that Kaballah should be studied only after learning other parts of the Torah. What is your opinion?
  • Religious-Zionists have been saying that the State of Israel is the promised Redemption. But with hundreds of terrorist killings, with warheads threatening Tel Aviv, with an ailing economy, and with national leaders that don't have answers, where is the Redemption in this?
  • Can we have a Christmas tree for our kids so that they don't feel like they are different from other children?
