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 dynamic, poetic refresher for conservative Jews, dynamic Jewishness:





dynamic Jewishness

Copyright Michael Alan Ross 2006-2015. All rights reserved.


dynamic Jewishness a coat of many colors for conservative Jews based on a freedom to choose a purposeful, celebration of life entrusted with responsibility 25 hours of savoring each week with song, psalms, study, and special food at communal torah and table based upon our covenant of holiness revealed at sinai between God and Jew and a dynamic oral tradition re-visiting rights and wrongs practices, halacha, aggada, and minhag in each generation anchored by marriage to God, to each other, and to a soulmate ordered by Shabbat, holidays, kashrut, and good deeds and a ladder of mitzvot for climbing higher surprising the intellect by singing, swaying, and steps rocking the synagogue with soaring voices appreciating solitude together studying our texts by listening, analyzing, and debating caring for our words by trying to understand them and eliciting meanings from them reflecting via ritual, rote, and creativeness upon our goodness within and its outward expression of oneness among humans and God








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.
