Description
 
We all want to be righteous, upstanding Jews, observing G-d's Torah, fulfilling His commandments. Yet often, too often, the laws of interpersonal relationships - bein adam l'chaveiro -- get overlooked. In this groundbreaking work, To Be a Mentch, Rabbi Yitzchak Shkop shows us the vital importance of the laws of interpersonal relationships.

To Be a Mentch is many things: it's a work of halachah, a work of Torah thought, and a practical guide to improving our relationships - both personal and professional. Drawing upon numerous Torah sources as well as true-life stories, Rabbi Shkop discusses:

  • How to make, and keep, resolutions that are sustainable and effective
  • The vast importance of a step at a time
  • How to give the benefit of the doubt
  • How to maintain integrity in business, for both employer and employee
  • How to improve our relationships with our spouses
  • The shidduch process and making it work
  • How to strengthen the traits of compassion, pity, lovingkindness, gratitude
  • Anger management
  • Friendship - and the importance of a smile

These are not just nice ideas - they are fundamentals in living full Torah lives. Because if you want to be a good Jew - you've also got to be a mentch!

Rabbi Paysach Krohn is today's successor of the great maggidim of Europe and Israel. Historically, the maggid was a talmid chacham, an orator, an observer of his society, and he would often travel from town to town and even country to country, speaking to communities. The best were charismatic, magnetic speakers, who could deliver an important, meaningful message in an appealing manner. People would enjoy the presentation, but that was the sugar coating for the inner message that inspire them to improve themselves.

That describes Rabbi Krohn perfectly. He is an enormously popular and sought-after speaker and lecturer. He has the uncanny ability to combine personal verve, warmth, and enthusiasm, as he uplifts audiences with an incredibly broad range of captivating and inspiring stories about famous and unknown people.

His appearances fill halls and arenas throughout the world. And that adds spice to this marvelous book, because wherever Rabbi Krohn goes - North America, Israel, Europe, Australia -- people tell him stories. In this captivating volume he presents us with the best of those countless stories, in his inimitable, infectious style.

But this American Maggid is much more than a storyteller. He hears a story and delves beneath its surface to perceives its lesson. What kernel of truth is buried in the narrative? How does it relate to us and what can it teach us? He mines everyday life for these eternal truths and shares them with us.
