Dr. Anthony Rebuck is a life-long sports fanatic with a penchant for the Toronto Blue Jays. Rebuck neglected Torah study in his early life in favor of watching, playing, and reading about sports but as an adult he began to take a more active role in his religion. During retirement Rebuck wondered if he could combine his two interests by finding in each weekly Torah reading something that would strike a chord with sports-lovers. In his book A Sportsman's Guide to the Torah Rebuck draws parallels between two seemingly different worlds - sports and religion - by pairing stories from his holy book with modern sports anecdotes. A Sportsman's Guide to the Torah is available at BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com.
