We’re so pleased to share that Danya Ruttenberg‘s On Repentance and Repair has won the National Jewish Book Award in the category of Contemporary Jewish Life and Practice.
The National Jewish Book Award is the longest-running and most prestigious of its kind—past notable winners include Philip Roth, Elie Wiesel, Jonathan Safran Foer, Alice Hoffman, and many others.
In an excerpt from the Jewish Book Council’s write-up, they say:
Despite her complex, even academic, approach, Ruttenberg has written an accessible, timely text of what it means to make amends, take part in true repair work, and seek forgiveness. She cuts through the rhetoricals and hypotheticals to offer real, concrete guidance on what must be done to heal and move forward from wrongdoing.
