A first of its kind, is a collection of over 20 spiritaul-Jewish messages each using sports events, figures and analogies as illustrations. It is divided into eight chapters pertaining to the sports-related topics of: baseball, basketball, football, hockey, golf, sports agency, the Olympics, and leaders and heroes.


Jewish tradition teaches: 'In all of your ways shall you attempt to know (and love) Him (God).' The glory of our tradition is that we never seperated the physical and the spiritual; it has always been our goal to elevate every aspect of the physical in order to bring the religious and the secular together. From this perspective Rabbi Gordon''''s most excting and relevant book Pray Ball! is a worthy addition to anyone''''s Judaica library.
