Rebbetzin Feige Twerski – Writings on the Web ↑
Rebbetzin Twerski has written extensively on a broad range of topics from a Jewish Torah-centric perspective. She has her own column on the popular Aish HaTorah website with more than 115 articles. You can find her articles here.
The Rebbetzin has also authored two books for Artscroll containing her insights on interpersonal relationships and Torah values.
The latest book from Rebbetzin Twerski is entitled The Future of Happiness from Mosaic Press:
The essence of a home is evident in the story of a young refugee child who was standing with her parents in the train station, surrounded by an assortment of trunks, boxes, and bags. A man approached her and said with great compassion, “You poor, dear child, wandering from place to place with no home to call your own.” The child looked at the man in puzzlement and responded, “Sir, you are mistaken. I do have a home — I just don’t have a house in which to put it.”
To build a happy Torah home is not a simple task, but it is the most important thing most of us can ever do. Are our homes Torah-dik? Are they happy? It seems that, despite the tremendous growth of technology and the economy, there is less happiness in the West than there used to be. The future of happiness is in doubt. The future of our homes does not seem secure.
In this unique, entertaining, and powerful volume, we will discover how to bring happiness to our homes — and ourselves.
Rebbetzin Twerski’s prior book is entitled The New Normal from Mosaic Press:
As the daughter of a Rebbe, the wife of a Rebbe, and a respected teacher of Torah herself, Rebbetzin Feige Twerski has been inspiring and uplifting Jewish women around the world for decades – and transmitting the eternal and Divine truths of our ancient tradition.
In this fascinating and unique book, she tackles what is perhaps our greatest challenge: the new world, and the “new normal.”
It isn’t only technology that has changed: with remarkable speed, the world’s values have radically changed. What was considered absolutely wrong only a generation ago is now…. glorified. How do we combat these destructive outside influences? How do we remain positive – and strong?
In this inspiring and practical book, Rebbetzin Twerksi shows us the way.
