About the Book

The Shema is the central prayer of the Jewish faith. Jews utter this single sentence, affirming God’s unity as their final words before dying, as well as at the beginning and ending of each day.

Using the Shema as his focus, Lamm, prominent Orthodox scholar and long-time president of Yeshiva University, explores the relationship between spirituality and law in Judaism.


This insightful book…will appeal to Jews of all backgrounds.
