The Torah Jew approaches the closing decades of the twentieth century with an awareness of the world around him, which he integrates with a wholesome approach to a Torah way of life. At home, he is inspired by the beautiful niggunim which come over his stereo; as he drives to work, he is perhaps, intrigued by one of a variety of Torah tapes; at work, he marks on his calendar a reminder concerning a Torah lecture which he plans to attend. He is a proud Jew, who appears to be aware of the meaning of the verse, "In all thy ways shalt thou know Him." And yet, when he enters his office or shop, and shuts the door behind him, is he shutting out the voice of halacha? Is he inclined to regard the halacha as a vital force in his life only insofar as it does not interfere with his business affairs; only when it is relegated to the affairs of the home, the synagogue, and the Beis haMidrash? In these pages, the author teaches us to understand the true meaning of this concept. The Torah Jew must learn to sanctify the Name of his Creator in his every endeavor, in the office as well as in the home, in the shop as well as in the synagogue, in the marketplace as well as in the Bais haMidrash. Doctor or lawyer, businessman or housewife, student or scholar, teacher or layman, each individual will find in these pages intellectual enrichment and spiritual stimulation, which will provide him with a new dimension in his appreciation of the Torah code of impeccable integrity, and of the bitachon concept, the Torah formula for contentment and for successful endeavor.
