Herman Wouk, the Pulitzer Prize winning and bestselling author, has died at the age of 103, just ten days short of his 104th birthday. His long career spanned a tumultuous time in American Jewish history, as many first and second generation Jews assimilated and shed their Jewish identities.

Wouk's This is my God was highly recommended by the Jewish Chaplain at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. He said it was an excellent explanation of the Jewish religion. Interesting that Wouk started Talmud studies instead of Torah studies. At Cedars, the chaplain, Levi Meier, studied the Torah, which he knew mostly by heart, in Hebrew; consequently, when one would refer to a Torah passage in English, he would translate it back into Hebrew, so he could locate it.

Isaac Singer's books are also an excellent source of insights into Judaism, especially "In my Father's Court".

One of the required readings at Andrews for "Jewish Life and Thought" class was Wouk's "This is my God" and it became one of my favorite books. Sad to hear of his death, but grateful for his ministry and his love for God.
