Secular vs. Observant
Mirror image identical twins JEFF & LARRY DEVERETT are genetically the same . . . but there is one BIG difference.  JEFF is a SECULAR Jew who lives in San Diego and focuses on the physical pleasures in life - "PLAY.”  In contrast, LARRY is a Torah OBSERVANT Jew who lives in Israel and focuses on the spiritual pleasures in life - “PRAY.”  Despite their deep-rooted love for each other, for many years Jeff & Larry were in great conflict with their lifestyles and priorities.  Now, in their early fifties, the brothers have learned how to respect, accept & even embrace each other’s lifestyles.  What used to be a huge conflict of EXTREME Orthodox vs. MODERATE Non-Orthodox culture is now a source of depth and comfort in their lives.  
In their new book, PLAY OR PRAY, Jeff & Larry compare the quality & happiness of their lives and share their understanding of being tolerant and accepting of each other.  This is a must read for people of all denominations and religious orientations.
