In this long-awaited memoir, Sol Schiff recaptures his remarkable journey from local cantor in a Bronx Synagogue to world-renown rabbi, whose devotion to community service and interfaith relations has made him a beacon of inspiration for millions of all faiths. He has shared thoughts with five American presidents, three Israeli Prime Ministers, two Popes and the Dalai Lama, along the way collecting a treasure chest of memories-from delivering the invocation on the floor of the U.S. Senate to his life-changing relocation to Florida with his beloved wife Shirley, where he would develop a deep and charming obsession with the Miami Dolphins. Like Rabbi Schiff himself, this touching collection of stories, lessons and jokes reminds us of the richness of Judaism, the power of faith and the invincibility of the human spirit.
