Da Es Atzmecha

"If a person has a simple basis of emunah in the Creator, and believes that the Torah is true, he must believe that he and all of mankind is very good." (Da Es Atzmecha, Chapter 4)

The Sudilkover Rebbe once told me that the Degel Machaneh Ephraim taught that a main component of our avodas Hashem is to continually seek out the good in others and in ourselves.

An amazing new sefer entitled Da Es Atzmecha provides practical guidance how to do just this. This sefer is written in very simple to understand language, walks the reader step-by-step forward, and provides penetrating insights that are certain to resonate in anyone who reads it. In a sense, it is a synthesis of the Kotzker quest for absolute truth and a modern day elucidation of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov's famous teaching of Azamra.

Once again, I have to thank my good friend Dixie Yid for turning me on to this sefer and for posting a link to the English translation. I highly encourage everyone to read it.
