From the Publisher:
Letters to President Clinton celebrates a unique chapter in the annals of both political and religious history: a written dialogue between prominent American Orthodox rabbi Menachem Genack and former President Bill Clinton that spanned more than 15 years. The two men first met when then-governor Clinton was just beginning his road to the White House; as their friendship deepened, the rabbi started sending Clinton brief essays highlighting spiritual insights from the Bible to help him navigate difficult decisions and issues. During his second term, the president asked Genack to write these pieces more regularly and formally, and the rabbi invited many of his distinguished acquaintances?Bible scholars, political leaders, scientists, clergy members, and laypeople?to contribute. This inspirational collection gathers more than 100 of these mini-sermons, organized by theme-expressions of the contemporary but universal messages found in the Bible's ancient wisdom?and featuring a foreword by Clinton himself.
