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 ethical advocacy, 10 Moral Reasons for One Payer Universal Health Care Insurance for America, in light of Hillel's If I'm only for myself, what am I?:






10 Moral Reasons for One Payer Universal Health Care Insurance for America






Number 1

Each of us should be responsible for our brothers and sisters.







Number 2

We Americans, fiscally and physically, are able to share the responsibility of caring for each other.







Number 3

Profit-making need not be balanced with keeping fellow citizens as healthy as humanly possible.







Number 4

Each tax-paying citizen should have a right to health care.







Number 5

Not only should each American be responsible for caring for the body which God has loaned us; but, also, we all should encourage such care.







Number 6

Choice of care-givers should remain an individual's preference.








Number 7

Care-givers should command excellent salaries for doing Godly work.







Number 8

By creating a health insurance pool consisting of our entire nation's population, we will be able to collect enough funds to pay care-givers.







Number 9

By spreading the financing of our health care over everyone, no one individual will find it onerous to contribute.







Number 10

By using the one payer universal health care insurance paradigm, we will empower ourselves to not having to worry about paying the bill when we or anyone we love gets sick and needs care.







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.
