This brilliant book takes us inside the “Teshuva Revolution.” Our guide is Dr. Akiva (Kevin) Tatz, a physician who journeyed from a medical practice in Johannesburg, South Africa to a yeshivah in Jerusalem.
In these pages, he takes us on an exciting and stimulating tour
through his experiences in medical school, as a young doctor faced with
the drama of the emergency room and operating theater, through his
work in the violence of South Africa’s bush war, and, later, on to
Yeshiva Ohr Somayach and its kollel. He shares with us the dramatic,
personal sagas of well-educated, searching men and women groping their
way into the world of Orthodox Judaism.
We will share the life of Akiva Tatz, intellectual physician turned
rabbi and mentor. We’ll share his life and the lives of the young
people from many backgrounds whom he meets and tutors. We’ll step into
the thought processes of young people searching for a better reality,
and we’ll find ourselves gripped by their quest and drawn into their
ascent. We’ll gain a first-hand insight into Jews returning to their
roots and creating one of the most exciting, most inspiring elements in
today’s Jewish world.
Most of all, this book provides an honest and fascinating look at an
admirable and arresting group of people, who have straddled two
worlds, made choices, sparked lives, and written chapters of Jewish
survival and renewal.
