Moments of the Heart

Moments of the Heart

by Dorice Horenstein

Overview: There are many paths to Jewish ideals, and Moments of the Heart takes readers by the hand in a non-intimidating way to explore Jewish thoughts, choose a kinder life, and be empowered.

Our heart has a tremendous influence on how we view life, how we act, and how we build relationships. Just as the heart has four chambers, Moments of the Heart lays out four different types of relationships: with oneself, with others, with the Creator, and once-in-a-life time moments that define people. Each chamber contains several entries introducing topics that stem from Jewish thought and practice that inspire readers to live their best lives, utilizing Hebrew knowledge, wisdom, and word play to dig deep, explore, and bring light to a concept. Native Israeli and educator Dorice Horenstein provides a self-empowering road map that leads readers towards the positive aspects of their lives with a “Lev Moement” opportunity at the end of each entry that sparks questioning, presents tangible tools and activities, and jump starts reflection to aid personal exploration. Approachable and inviting to both secular readers and all walks of faith who wish to cultivate a deeper ethical awareness and spiritual connection, Moments of the Heart serves to encourage everyone to live fully and wholeheartedly—heart, mind, and soul.

Leslie Swichkow (11/09/19): What a gem of a book! The author writes with intention, symbolism and inspirational messages, encouraging the reader to think about their relationships. Built on the idea that the heart has 4 chambers, Moments of the Heart explores four types of relationships: with yourself, with others, with God and with community and life events. She includes some references to Jewish texts and some interesting facts about the Hebrew language. At the conclusion of each short chapter, she gives readers the opportunity to delve deeper. A book that is easy to read and enjoyable, but also one that evokes deep thoughts and emotions. I can truly say that I feel I am a better person, companion and friend having read this book and striving to employ some of the life lessons offered within it.
