Daas Torah A Jewish Sourcebook
By: Daniel Eidensohn
Many people who have a good Jewish education in yeshiva or seminary regarding Jewish law and observance often lack a deep and mature knowledge of Jewish Theology. Furthermore as a psychotherapist working in the Orthodox world I very often see clients whose problems are more issues of misunderstanding of Judaism rather than psychological issues per se. Knowledge of Jewish Theology is very often restricted to a few platitudes such as You should love your fellow man or G-d runs the world or mistaken ideas such as that Judaism doesn’t require any specific beliefs but only deeds. These concerns apply even more to someone without a good Jewish education. In addition, teachers often expend hours looking for relevant material to explain a particular concept and students often need additional sources to get a clarify of subtle points. This is a rich source book for those who would like to delve into the rich and nuanced discussions of classical Jewish theology. It is the work of over 10 years of compilation, translation and organizing. This work removes a number of hurdles 1) The original Hebrew has been translated into contemporary English 2) A wide variety of sources are quoted to avoid presented a biased and distorted view of a particular topic 3) There is no attempt to prove or force a particular view and thus contradictory views are presented 4) There is no censoring of material which might not be politically correct to current understandings but was acceptable for thousands of years. As Rav Eliashiv told me, You don’t avoid teaching Torah because it might cause confusion or questions. That is why a person has a teacher or rebbe. As Rav Moshe Shapiro advised, Let the sources speak for themselves.
About the Author
While I have a Ph.D.in psychology I have spent most of my time in the last 25 years in writing scholarly books for the Orthodox Jewish community. I have written Yad Moshe which is the index to the Igros Moshe of Rav Moshe Feinstein. I have written Yad Yisroel the index to the Mishna Berura of the Chofetz Chaim and Daas Torah an encyclopedia of Jewish Theology. I also write a blog Daas Torah which deals with issues that are of concern to the contemporary Orthodox Jews society. In recent years I have received guidance from Rav Moshe Sternbuch of the Eidah Charedis
