A must read...

I just finished reading an amazing book, and I need to tell everyone to read it.

The Dawning Of The Day is the story of a simple man living in Jerusalem. I can't really explain what the book is about, but it happens to be one of the most amazing reads I've ever had.


The author, Haim Sabato, has a hesder yeshiva right outside Jerusalem. His writing is rich with faith, quoting from TaNaCh left and right. Though the style may be simplistic, there is such inherent profundity that you won't notice it. I read his first book, Adjusting Sights, last winter, and was awed by his storytelling as well as the pure emotion within. This book just compounded that sense in me, and I urge everyone to get it and read it.

Trust me.

Have you read Aleppo Tales yet? Also by Haim Sabato.
aANother book I'd like to recommend if you like Sabato, very different but also rich with faith & quoting from TaNaCh left and right si If You Awaken Love by Emuna Elon - Set in Israel between the Six Day War and the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, If You Awaken Love is the intensely moving story of a stormy and spiritual young girl/woman and her love-hate relationships with her childhood sweetheart, with her father, and with God. Don't let yourself be fooled by the cover!
