I love to daven in Rabbi Ian Pear’s synagogue, Shir Hadash. It is bursting with song, and brimming with optimism. Its Rabbi is never without a smile on his face and a warm, loving word for all. His uncompromising optimism is captured in the wonderful D’vrei Torah found in this volume. Read them, share them, internalize them. They are an inspiration for positive Jewish thinking and for focusing on the joy of Judaism.
