Slow down and give yourself a gift and read GOD WHISPERS by Rabbi Karen Kedar. It is one of those amazing texts that seem to speak to you when you need it most. Many of her chapter/lessons will stay with you and "pop out" during your life and the most unexpected moments. Because of her style, you can pick up the book and read it from the start - or middle. Each chapter will add to your life and speak to your soul. How fortunate we are that Rabbi Kedar shares her experiences and wisdom with us! read it and feed your soul!

I truly treasure this book and find that I have read many of the stories over and over, each time gaining new insight and meaning to my own journey. Karen Kedar's book might be titled "God Whispers", but its messages are loud and clear. Karen, I thank you for the gift of this book and I pray there might be a Volume II someday.

At first I read the book from cover-to-cover, finding answers to often-thought-of questions as well as answers to questions I didn't even know I was asking. Now, I frequently just open to any page and it seems as if G-d was Whispering directly in my ear. The stories speak directly to my heart.

This book will speak to your soul. In the style of Kitchen Table Wisdom, the author shares powerful stories about spiritual understanding gained from everyday life. Kedar helps us realize that each moment can be a holy moment. Every time I pick it up, I get a new insight and am uplifted.

This book touched me so deeply, I bought ten copies to distribute to friends and family.

Karyn Kedar understands and addresses the sense of loss and isolation which are too often part of the human experience. She confirms that our dreams and hopes are attainable, when we work to connect with others, look for meaning in the day to day, and realize God is found in a myriad of places we would least expect. When we look and listen closely, God is softly speaking to and directing us.

This book is sustenance for the spiritually hungry.

I bought Rabbi Kedar's book after learning that she had been chosen as the Senior Rabbi of my synagogue, B'nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim in Glenview, IL. I am now not only excited about reading her 2nd book, but getting to live these experiences with her on a routine basis. This book lived up to its introduction where it suggested that I would find great comfort in some of what I read in the book, but I will also become fearful of some of the stories as well as angry about some of them. In each case, however, it caused me to reflect on how I would and should react and what was truly causing me to feel the way I did. I think this book will help me in my every day dealing with people. Applause to Rabbi Kedar for an outstanding book (as well as to BJBE's search committee for a great choice for Senior Rabbi!!!!).

In our hectic lives, we very seldom stop to appreciate the blessing we have been given and fail to realize that God blesses us in many small ways each day.
This insightful and very moving book is an important reminder that life's low points may be just as important as the high points in bringing us closer to God and realizing just how lucky we really are.
If you like the various Chicken Soup books, you will definitely find God Whispers uplifting in the same sort of way.

Rabbi Kedar's book is both insightful and inspirational. She has a marvelous way with words, and I found myself stopping frequently just to let a phrase filter through my soul. The first time, I read quickly because I simply didn't want to stop. Now, I am reading a couple pages at a time, making notes to myself, and highlighting key phrases. I highly recommend God Whispers to others on the journey.
