Most people are living longer lives, but not necessarily in good health. It is therefore timely that the new book Am I My Body’s Keeper? Torah, Diet, Science, and Fitness – for Life focuses on how to achieve both.

The author, Michael Kaufman, writes from the perspective of a religiously observant Jew. Accordingly, the book includes quotations from Jewish sages on the subject of healthful practices – most prominently those of Maimonides (Rambam), the medieval rabbi-philosopher-physician whose guidelines on proper diet, exercise, sleep and attitude are incorporated in many modern Jewish works for their timeless wisdom.
