"A new book by Rabbi Hanoch Teller is always worthy of a hearty Shehechiyanu but the "The Best of StoryLines" deserves a special welcome. There is a singular kind of timelessness to this beautiful work, which alternates stories of long ago with events as fresh as today's sunrise. It is an impossible to read without becoming a better person, impossible not to yearn for more. Utterly impossible. As "The Best of StoryLines" transports us to different times and places, we slowly begin to get the message. It is not the When or Where which counts, but the What and How. What was done to improve someone else's lot? How did one triumph over adversity and the powers of evil. These are the questions of our lives and Rabbi Teller answers them as always, with humor, with compassion and with that strongest of literary tools, with love. - Rabbi Yaakov Feitman, Young Israel of Beachwood, Ohio.
