The Erez Series, A Concise Guide to Mahshava contains an anthology of passages that address profound questions that have challenged the greatest minds throughout Jewish history. We focus not only on the content of the passages and descriptions of events, but on responses to questions such as: Why? What is the meaning of this? Much of the material brought here relates to the content of the other books in this series, but this volume also contains a selection of various problems and responses to general questions relating to the nation and the individual, to life, fate, and purpose. Essentially, one will find here a series of meditations and contemplations that are relevant to anyone insofar as he contemplates his own humanity. The book draws from the writings of many authors that relate, each in their own way, to these essential questions. The array of sources includes works composed since the time of the Sages, beginning approximately in the eighth century, until the twentieth century. One will also find here thoughts and ideas from people who lived more recently, up to the present day.
