For over forty years, Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis has been a globetrotting spokeswoman for Judaism. Whether counseling a searching soul or addressing a packed house in Madison Square Garden, her message is elegantly universal, while simultaneously addressing the specific needs of contemporary Jews. In Life is a Test, the Rebbetzin’s uncompromising convictions, her insights on faith, her soul-stirring wisdom, and her palpable love of all people saturate every word.

Life is a Test is really three audiobooks in one, each bearing a particular focus to help listeners find the hidden significance in challenging circumstances. The audiobook begins with tests of self-discovery and then examines the challenging realm of interpersonal relationships, concluding with a section on perceiving Divine Design in the big picture of global events, as well as in one’s own world. Regardless of age or experience, people of all persuasions will find meaningful substance in Life is a Test. Rebbetzin Jungreis has captured many of our deep-seated questions, and has graciously provided us with a decipherable answer key.

About the Author

Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis came to the United States after surviving the Nazi’s Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. To counter the spiritual holocaust among Jews around the world, the Rebbetzin founded Hineni, a pioneering outreach organization that reconnects Jews to their rich and dynamic Jewish heritage.

The Rebbetzin writes a weekly column for the Jewish Press, the world’s more widely circulated Anglo-Jewish newspaper. Her weekly Hineni program is the longest running Jewish broadcast in America. Thousands have attended the Rebbetzin’s twice-weekly Torah classes in Manhattan. These challenging lectures have been the catalyst for over 1,000 marriage matches.

Life Is a Test is Rebbetzin Jungreis’ fourth book. She previously authored three bestsellers: Jewish Soul on Fire, The Committed Life, and The Committed Marriage. Translated into Spanish, Russian, Hungarian, and Hebrew, her books have transformed hearts, from soldiers in the field to business leaders and heads of state.
