Why the Kof? Getting the Best of Rabbi Fuchs. By Rabbi Stephen Lewis Fuchs. Paperback. 139 pages. ASIN: B06XMY5TKZ.

Susan Marie Shuman, the freelance writer and editor of SusanWritesPrecise, has announced the publication of Rabbi Stephen Fuchs’ third book, “Why the Kof? Getting the Best of Rabbi Fuchs.” Compiled and edited by Shuman, this new book comprises 47 of the rabbi’s finest essays and blog posts to date. Having worked with Rabbi Fuchs on previous projects, Shuman came to know his work well, and found the extensive subject matter thought-provoking, refreshing and insightful.

“In addition to being a phenomenal speaker and a whiz at Biblical interpretation, how many rabbis do you know who were tennis pros and know the words to almost every doo-wop song? Rabbi Fuchs has a lot to say that’s of interest to a lot of people,” she said.

Currently residing in West Hartford, Connecticut, Rabbi Fuchs was born in East Orange, New Jersey, to the late Florence and Leo Fuchs. He is the former president of the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ) and rabbi emeritus of Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford.

“Why the Kof? Getting the Best of Rabbi Fuchs” is available for purchase on in both paperback and Kindle versions.
