Basic standards of modesty, maintained in previous generations, have been breached and eliminated in today's world. Wherever we are, we find ourselves tested in matters of kedushah.
Rising Above addresses this head-on - speaking to everyone, and not just to those who have stumbled. Among the topics addressed are:
- Â· Why is preserving our kedushah so fundamental to Judaism?
- Â· From where can we draw the strength to resist what is so easily accessible?
- Â· What strategies are there for tackling the dangers of modern technology?
- Â· Why was this challenge given specifically to our generation?
Everyone is part of this battle for kedushah. Each Jew must learn about the dangers brought about by the "Digital Revolution" - in order to deal effectively with the tests, he confronts in his daily life. This groundbreaking work provides the information and tools for doing just that.

"Rabbi Alexander Mandelbaum has written a book to help people counteract the pull of the Internet and of all illicit cravings. In Rising Above, he presents cogent advice and strategies to enable those trapped by the web of their desires to free themselvesâ¦
"We all owe Rabbi Mandelbaum a debt of gratitude for writing it."
Rabbi Aharon Feldman, Rosh Yeshiva, Ner Israel Rabbinical College
