Rabbi Dr. Nathan Drazin (1906-1976) a noted scholar offers his readers 36 delightful stories with important moral lessons. The number 36 corresponds to the legend that there are 36 pious Jews in every generation who sustain the rest of Jewry because of their piety. Rabbi Drazin was well-known for his brilliance and his humble humanity. He once wrote, how can a person who knows that he is very smart still be humble? He replied, truly smart people know that everyone knows something they do not know, and they must therefore be humble before everyone. Readers will enjoy these 36 simple but thought provoking legends that teach moral lessons about people that make life worth living.
