They elevate all those around them.
Their lives are one of surprise, struggle, and triumph.
"The Unexpected Road" is filled with inspiring and illuminating stories of spiritually gifted Jews around the world. These stories invite us to nurture our own trust in G-d.

This is a book well worth reading and contemplating.
RABBI BEREL WEIN, SHLITA
Hillel Goldberg is known to a wide circle of readers for his exposition of vital texts and his insights into heroic lives. In his classic study on R. Israel Salanter, both themes met in a work of singular distinction. That he has not surrendered to mediocrity and pretense, while retaining magnetic appeal, is yet another special mark of his, and in this too he has few competitors.
RABBI NACHMAN BULMAN, ZT"L
