As mirror image identical twins JEFF & LARRY DEVERETT look the same, talk the same, and are genetically the same . . . but there is one BIG difference. JEFF is a SECULAR Jew who lives in San Diego, CA and enjoys a wonderful "Southern California lifestyle." Jeff is focused on the physical pleasures in life - "PLAY.” In contrast, LARRY is a Torah OBSERVANT Jew who lives in Bet Shemesh, Israel and enjoys a deep connection to Hashem & to the Holy Land. Larry is focused 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 Orthodox vs. 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 Jews of all denominations and religious orientations.
