Volume of 58 essays on the weekly Torah Portion and festivals, exploring ideal manifestations of the attribute of (חן) grace as the root of (חתן) groom as an archetype of masculinity. Seeking understanding to create a society where all gender expressions and identities are reflections of the Divine and filled with grace, this book offers positive modalities as an alternative to contemporary toxicity and erasure.
As the parent of a boy, I often reflect on how to help my son grow into spiritually healthy masculinity. In these essays, Rabbi Moskowitz draws on the deep well of Jewish tradition to offer pathways to exactly the kind of graceful and gracious masculinity I want for my son. The masculinity he describes here is conscious of others, thoughtful about impacts, wholly present and connected. As I reread these pages, I learn more deeply what a Jewish man can be and become.
