"This book was inspired by a nearly 300-year-old story that was told to me by my Kabbalah teacher. It is about the power of words. And how we must choose them carefully to avoid causing harm to others.
The Baal Shem Tov - "Master of the Good Name" - who was the author of the original story, was also a great teacher. He dedicated his life to helping others, and stressed the value and importance of love for all people.
I hope that I have done his story justice.
This book is dedicated to teachers everywhere".
