|Book Which Changed My Life
For some, it's the children's books that opened a young mind to a new idea; for others, it's the breakthrough book that put an adult life on a different path.
We are asking members of our congregation to name the book that shaped them. Share your recommendation with us by clicking here.
We hope to gather a
variety of books and insight into people who have made Tucson what it is today — and are influencing what it will be in the future.
A complete list and a constant formation of "Books Which Changed My Life," including comments by congregants who submitted these books will be available. There will also be an opportunity to purchase a copy of the recommended books through Congregation Or Chadash's Associate Purchasing Program on Amazon.com found on our Home Page.

Rabbi Thomas A. Louchheim says...
Born in Sweden in 1905, and died near Northern Rhodesia on September 18, 1961, in an air crash while flying there to negotiate a cease-fire between United Nations and Katanga forces. In 1952 he was chairman of the UN, and in 1953 he was elected Secretary-General and re-elected in 1957. This manuscript (actually his diary) was left to be published after his death. In his words, a “book concerning my negotiations with myself – and God.”
