In an infamous short pamphlet called "How to Get Deeper into Torah Without Falling Off the Deep End" first published in 1994 by Laser Pages Publishing, the author, who goes by the title "Friedman the Tutor", provides some useful guidance for youth who are beginning their journey through the Yeshiva/Seminary system, and provides advice for avoiding many of the obstacles that people encounter in that period of growth. Some of the topics discussed include: maintaining healthy relationships, going slow, staying grounded, and having realistic expectations.

(Original pamphlet available here. Sharing of the full pamphlet is encouraged by the author.)

What is the full name of the author? Have they published any other works? The author provided a P.O. Box in Jerusalem, 6476, but this is likely no longer accurate.

  • Is the publisher still active? Have you tried contacting them?

  • @mevaqesh I have been unable to locate any other writings under the name "Friedman the Tutor". I have not attempted sending mail to the PO Box provided above.

    On the topic of authorship and Jewish books, I'd say so.

    Presumably, for whatever reason the publisher didn't put the author's name on the pamphlet, it also won't give it to an inquiring member of the public. (Unless that reason has expired.)
