Rebbetzen Esther Jungreis, world-renowned inspirational speaker debuts book about conquering life's most difficult challenges. "Life Is A Test" - Available November 7, 2006

For more than forty years, Hungarian-born Rebbetzen Esther Jungreis has traveled the world spreading a Jewish message of hope that cuts across age, gender, educational, cultural and religious boundaries. In her latest book, "Life Is A Test - How To Meet Life's Challenges Successfully" (Mesorah Publications), she appeals to every person to embrace and appreciate difficulties as building blocks for a genuinely fulfilled life. Through personal stories, she serves up insights that are riveting as they are relevant.

Life Is A Test is really three books in one, each bearing a particular focus to help readers look for the message embedded in any difficulty. The book begins with tests of self-discovery and then examines the challenging realm of interpersonal relationships, concluding with a section on perceiving the Divine Design in the big picture of global events, as well as in one's own world.

Life Is a Test speaks to a wide swath of quality of life issues, including: the source of inner peace, handling financial struggles, parenting, the meaning of suffering, hearing your inner voice, finding your soul mate, and realizing your spiritual potential.

"This new book is aimed at helping us discover our inner selves, to successfully enrich our interpersonal relationships, and to confidently grasp the big picture" says Jungreis. "Indeed, life is a test and this book shows us how to tap our inner ability to pass whatever our individual test may be."

Whether addressing a full house in Madison Square Garden or giving advice one-on-one, Rebbetzen Jungreis' message, drawn from the wellsprings of ancient Jewish wisdom, is elegantly universal. Composed and comfortable in the face of royalty or distress, she has earned respect from heads of state to families in crisis. Last year, she was appointed by President Bush to serve on the United States Holocaust Council.

Though her book targets the challenges of contemporary Jews, people of all backgrounds will find motivating substance in Life Is A Test. More than articulating many of our deep-seated questions, Rebbetzen Jungreis provides a surprising answer key.

May I ask you to have a look at Obadiah Shoher's book and blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict?

Google banned our website from its ad program for “unacceptable content," and Amazon deleted all reviews. The book, however, is only honest, and the measures suggested are only rational.

Shoher is a pen name for veteran Israeli politician. He dealt with antiterrorism issues for most of his career. The Samson Blinded dissects honestly the problems accumulated since the Jews returned to Palestine. Advocating political rationalism, it deplores both Jewish and Muslim myths, and argues for efficiency and separating politics from moralism. As one reviewer noted, "Shoher is pro-Israeli, yet he does not sugarcoat anything he presents."
