What does a birthday mean? In this powerful work of everyday spirituality, legendary community educator Yehudis bas David (Fishman) gives us her take on the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s famous challenge to make our own birthdays more meaningful. Fishman takes us on a walk through a garden of years: one hundred essays, one for each of the first hundred years of a person’s life. Her work deals with the spiritual challenges of aging, our changing roles and relationships, and the spiritual numerology that hides behind the number. She draws on a very deep pool of learning, and she makes creative connections to Chassidic stories, Tehillim, the Sephiros and to personal stories from her own life. Replete with over 100 unique art pieces throughout, this book makes a wonderful Jewish milestone gift as well.
