Michael A. Ross, a post-denominational, American Jew, and author of the newly published, The Ten Commandments Guidebook elucidates both spiritual, practical, and fun ways to self-struggle with our Ten Commandments. Mr. Ross uses his creative poetry, prose, and lyrics to construct modern midrashim and piyyutim, prosaic and poetic commentaries. Rabbi Ellen Pildis, a post-denominational rabbi, offers praise of his text on the book's back cover. In re-Visiting The Ten Commandments , Mr. Ross finds meaningful and unusual ways to sing about, to wax poetic, to constructively criticize, and to praise in light of our Commandments. Mr. Ross also is author of BostonWalks' The Jewish Friendship Trail Guidebook - 6 Self-guided Jewish History Walk Tours of Downtown Boston. His writings are drawn from a lifetime of Jewish American experiences.
Here is an example of his original, exhortatory poem, From Atonement to Good Deeds, in light of the 7th Commandment, No adultery:





From Atonement to Good Deeds

Copyright Michael Alan Ross 2004-2015. All rights reserved.


Which nation, like a recovered alcoholic, now should refute hate?
Which nation once was evil incarnate?
Which nation does God obligate?


Which nation could take responsibility to abate?
Where parents' crimes against humanity were great?
Who murdered in the millions rate?


Which nation has an opportunity to remonstrate?
Who can stop evil's repetition before too late?
Whose citizens, in the Holocaust, did participate?


Which nation knows well stopping anti-Semitism can't wait?
Whose leaders had a policy to annihilate?
Which nation committed murder by a state?


Which nation has the credibility to condemnate?
Who best, suicide bombers and gas chambers, can equate?
Which nation should proclaim Stop mate!?


Which nation, Aushwitz, Treblinka, and Sobibor, did create?
Which nation could teach radical Muslims not to hate?
Who should teach love, need I reiterate?





Midrashim and Piyyutim!


Mr. Ross' poetry about the Ten Commandments, his prosaic warm memories of family life, and his lyrical voicing of social concerns can be called by the Hebrew words piyyutim and midrashim, poems and commentaries, which offer uplifting, spiritual and, sometimes, simply appreciative or challenging interpretations. In addition, Mr. Ross offers many suggestions for the reader to consider in struggling with the Ten Commandments, making this Guidebook a fine teaching tool, usable not only for its inspirational reading but also for its suggestions of good deeds.
