"Zoob's paintings is partly an enlightening research of the Covenant of Israel because it develops within the publication of Genesis. but, its strength lies in his immersion into the narratives of Genesis which impel him to recollect and relive his personal lifestyles trip at the same time it calls for our personal self-reflection. His booklet is chock filled with insights spawned by means of the Biblical characters on the way to problem each smooth reader."
--Norman J. Cohen, Provost and Professor Emeritus of Midrash, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
"A life of Genesis is the fruit of a life of rabbinic studying. it's heartfelt, discovered, inspiring and, in particular, clever. whereas many clergy have written autobiographies, to my wisdom, none have listed their lives via a booklet of the Bible. Zoob without problems shuttles among severe biblical scholarship and candid--even searing--reflections on his personal lifestyles and rabbinic instructing. the result's a compelling kaleidoscope of Jewish thought."
--Lawrence Kushner, Scholar-in-Residence, The Congregation Emanu-El, San Francisco; former rabbi of Congregation Beth El, Sudbury, MA; writer of Kabbalah: A Love Story
"This is an outstanding publication. It makes an unique and robust argument for the importance of covenant in Genesis, and it really is with no qualification the main sincere and entire autobiography of an American rabbi we own. Brilliantly, Rabbi Zoob hyperlinks those in a riveting research of Genesis and a desirable memoir."
--Marc Lee Raphael, Nathan and Sophia Gumenick Professor of Judaic stories, the school of William and Mary; writer of Diary of a la Jew, 1947-1973: Autobiography as Autofiction
