About-

What does it mean to trust in God?
How can man love God?
If timidity is unwholesome, why does Scripture speak of the fear of God?
When should a lie be told?
What ought to be our attitude to warfare?
Of what relevance is the ideal of holiness to men and women of this age?
How can pride be conquered?
Can a man love his neighbor as himself?

In Jewish Values, these and many other ethical and religious questions are considered in the light of Jewish teachings.
It is the author's thesis that a gap exists between traditional views as presented in the classic sources of Judaism and their application in the lives of our contemporaries, but he is convinced that this gap can be bridged. This book is a contribution to the building of such a bridge or, at least, as the author suggests, it is a surveyor's plan of part of the work to be done.
