Rabbi Daniel Lapin is one of America’s most courageous and eloquent voices fighting secular fundamentalism. He ardently believes and persuasively demonstrates that America’s success derives from our commitment to Judeo-Christian foundations, including Biblical attitudes to marriage and money, and that abandoning them imperils all we hold dear.

Rabbi Lapin was the founding rabbi of Pacific Jewish Center, a now legendary Orthodox synagogue in Venice, CA. He is the president of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians (AAJC) a national movement of Jewish and Christian cooperation in the area of family, faith, and fortune. He is a headline speaker for hundreds of companies, organizations, and institutions and was the keynote speaker at the Congressional bi-partisan opening of the 106th Congress in Washington, D.C.

An enthusiastic boater who has sailed his family across the Pacific, Rabbi Daniel Lapin and his wife, Susan, homeschooled their seven children and take great joy in their family.

Is Rabbi Lapin a Messianic Jew?

No. The paragraphs below introduced Rabbi Daniel Lapin’s best-selling book, America’s Real War: An Orthodox Jew Insists that Judeo-Christian Values Are Vital for Our Country’s Survival and may help you understand Rabbi Lapin’s work with and appreciation for the Christian community.

“I am an Orthodox rabbi. I am the son of a famous Orthodox rabbi and the brother of two more. My teachers were the great scholars who headed the Gateshead Talmudic Academy in England, some of whom were uncles and cousins. I became a disciple of my great-uncle, the revered Rabbi Eliyahu (Elijah) Lopian (the original family name) during my many years of study at the theological academy of Kfar Hassidim in Israel. Although I often fall short, I do my best to live my life and raise my children according to the laws of the five books of Moses, our holy Torah, and the customs of Moses and of Israel.

Because it is so unusual these days for a rabbi to say nice things about Christians, I consider it necessary to explain that I am not now, nor have I ever been, a Christian. I profess no special expertise of the books known as the New Testament. Being infatuated with Judaism and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, I dedicate my study time to expanding my familiarity with Jewish theology. In the midst of a life-long love affair with the searing truth of the Torah, I reject any notion of theological compatibility between Judaism and Christianity; I do not believe a devoutly religious Jew can also be a born-again Christian. One faith has produced Judaism, the longest-lasting, continuous culture in the history of the world, while the other has been responsible for the founding of America, the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

In making the case for Christianity in America, I am not suggesting that Jews ought to embrace the Christian faith. I believe that Jews should actively embrace traditional Judaism; I have spent many years of my life helping to bring that about. But I am suggesting, at the very least, that Jews should stop speaking and acting as if Christian America is their enemy. I feel that all Americans who love freedom, whether or not they are religious, should welcome the reawakening of earnest Christianity throughout the land. I shall try to establish that Jews as well as other minorities have the most to fear from a post-Christian America.”

I noticed a difference between the price on the back of the product and what was charged at your online store. What is reason for this difference?

What Bible can I use to show me ancient Jewish wisdom?

Many people have asked this question. The truth is that no translation or individual volume can cover the entire spectrum of ancient Jewish wisdom.  However, the Tanach Stone Edition provides a good and accurate English translation for understanding God’s word. You can purchase the Bible from Amazon through the following link.

I would like to learn Hebrew. Do you have a Hebrew language course?

At this time, Rabbi Daniel and Susan Lapin do not have a Hebrew course, however this may be forthcoming in the future. If you are on our mailing list you will be among the first to hear when this happens. You may be interested in the Lapin’s book, Buried Treasure as it explores many Hebrew words in depth and gives insight into the Hebrew language. The Lapins also publish an alphabet bet for children called Aleph-Bet: A Fun, Rhyming, Bible-based Introduction to the Hebrew Alphabet.
