Timely Words offers insights into many of the religious and secular occasions throughout the year that mark the modern American Jewish calendar, starting with the fall (incorporating Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur) and moving, consecutively, through the winter (Thanksgiving, Chanukah, and Tu BiShevat), spring (Purim, Pesach, Yom HaAtzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim), and summer (Shavuot and Tish`a BeAv). The insights are drawn from a wide variety of classical, medieval, and modern sources and address subjects that are both traditional and unconventional. For example, the opening fall section includes an extensive study of Jewish angelology ('Angels Dancing on a Silicon Chip') to address whether God now uses a computer to record our merits and debits, and the concluding summer section explores the question of the rebuilding of the Temple and reinstitution of sacrifices according to significant modern Jewish personalities.
