Praise for Hineni

“Rabbi Jonathan Kligler is a subtle and passionate thinker. The two traits don’t always go together, but with him, the passion for Torah flows along with a finely tuned intellect. This collection of sermons will make you want to learn Torah.”

—Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of Jewish Literacy and A Code of Jewish Ethic

“Rabbi Jonathan Kligler has over twenty-five years served as a warm-hearted pastor friend and as an inspiring Torah teacher. His book will enlighten your mind and warm your heart to be the best kind of Jew for the 21st century.”

—Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement, author of “Jewish with Feeling: A Guide to Meaningful Jewish Practice”

“Rabbi Kligler is at once a spiritual seeker, a lover of the Jewish textual tradition, a gentle and empathetic guide to the eternal human condition, and a perceptive observer of the contemporary scene. He weaves these threads together so that each illumines the other. The resulting insights challenge the reader to think afresh, live deeply and embrace life with joy.”

—Rabbi David Teutsch, Professor of Contemporary Jewish Civilization and past president of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, author of Spiritual Community: The Power to Restore Hope, Commitment and Joy”
