Landau, Sol  
Length of Our Days: Focus on Judaism and the Personal Life
 Picture
Publisher: Bloch Publishing Company, 1961 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall INSCRIBED on front endpaper: "To / Mr. & Mrs. B.. / with warmest wishes / Sol Landau / March 1966". "This book of timely and provocative lectures and sermons sets forth the basic problems which confront the present program of the Synagogue, its effectiveness in relating Judaism to the personal life, and how to rendert it again a real power in the life of the individual. In Length of OUr Days, the author challenges the modern Jew to focus Judaism on his personal life in view of the fact that 'in a highly mechanized and depersonalized environment, Judaism must be able to perform its task in establishing the identity and thus the individuality of each Jew. Methods and techniques must be developed to make the Synagogue the instrument for effecting the relevancy of religion to life.' The author contends that 'the phenomenal and fast changes which have brought about the space age present the challenges to the basic concepts maintained by religion. Yet, the real threat to effectiveness of religion seems to come from its complete 'acceptance' attested by increasing affiliation with its institutions.' Each of the seventeen articles relate to the problems and responsibilities in our daily lives as American Jews, offering spiritual food for thought and guidance for Jewish living in action." 103 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; shelfwear.

Every Man's Problems
 Picture
Publisher: Harry Silverstone, 1947 Washington, DC.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall INSCRIBED on front endpaper: "To Mr. Harry C. Wechsler / With best Wishes / Harry Silverstone". Silverstone is Rabbi of Tifereth Israel Congregation in Washington, DC. "The purpose of this book 'Every Man's Problems' is to provide help and inspiration toward right thinking and right living, and to suggest ideals which will make for material and spiritual welfare. In youth, as we look up to the high places to which we aspire, difficult problems confront us, which make life appear a hill or a rocky fortress, difficult to surmount. Day by day we do our best, and step by step ascend. When many long years have passed and some progress has been made we turn about to look back. Obstacles have vanished and are forgotten. Sweet memories come of good dee3ds done, services rendered, friendships and affections maintained. Life in retrospect is transformed, becoming from age to youth a lovely garden of memories. I trust that these thoughts may stimulate and sustain many a fellow traveler on his journey along life's pathway." 171 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; some discoloration (tanning) to text pages. No dust jacket.
