Anatomy Of A Search
Personal drama in the teshuvah revolution.
By Akiva Tatz
Published: by Artscroll Mesorah
This brilliant book takes us inside the "Teshuva Revolution."
Our guide is Dr. Akiva (Kevin) Tatz, a physician who journeyed
from a medical practice inJohannesburg, South Africa to a
yeshivah in Jerusalem.
In these pages, he takes us on an exciting and stimulating tour
through his experiences in medical school, as a young doctor
faced with the drama of the emergency room and operating
theater, through his work in the violence of South Africa’s
bush war, and, later, on to Yeshiva Ohr Somayach and its
kollel. He shares with us the dramatic, personal sagas of
well-educated, searching men and women groping their way into
the world of Orthodox Judaism.
We will share the life of Akiva Tatz, intellectual physician
turned rabbi and mentor. We’ll share his life and the lives of
the young people from many backgrounds whom he meets and
tutors. We’ll step into the thought processes of young people
searching for a better reality, and we’ll find ourselves
gripped by their quest and drawn into their ascent. We’ll gain a
first-hand insight into Jews returning to their roots
and creating one of the most exciting, most inspiring elements
in today’s Jewish world.
Most of all, this book provides an honest and fascinating look
at an admirable and arresting group of people, who have
straddled two worlds, made choices, sparked lives, and written
chapters of Jewish survival and renewal.
