"Zoob's paintings is partially an enlightening research of the Covenant of Israel because it develops within the publication of Genesis. but, its energy lies in his immersion into the narratives of Genesis which impel him to recollect and relive his personal existence trip while it calls for our personal self-reflection. His booklet is chock packed with insights spawned by means of the Biblical characters so one can problem each glossy reader."

"A life of Genesis is the fruit of a life of rabbinic studying. it really is heartfelt, realized, inspiring and, mainly, clever. whereas many clergy have written autobiographies, to my wisdom, none have listed their lives via a booklet of the Bible. Zoob easily shuttles among severe biblical scholarship and candid--even searing--reflections on his personal lifestyles and rabbinic educating. the result's a compelling kaleidoscope of Jewish thought."
--Lawrence Kushner, Scholar-in-Residence, The Congregation Emanu-El, San Francisco; former rabbi of Congregation Beth El, Sudbury, MA; writer of Kabbalah: A Love Story
"This is an outstanding ebook. It makes an unique and powerful argument for the importance of covenant in Genesis, and it truly is with no qualification the main sincere and entire autobiography of an American rabbi we own. Brilliantly, Rabbi Zoob hyperlinks those in a riveting research of Genesis and a desirable memoir."
--Marc Lee Raphael, Nathan and Sophia Gumenick Professor of Judaic reviews, the varsity of William and Mary; writer of Diary of a l. a. Jew, 1947-1973: Autobiography as Autofiction
