About the Author
As a Chabad Rabbi for more than 40 years, Tuvia Teldon was compelled to take his spiritual learning to a new level after his son’s death from Cystic Fibrosis in 1991. Thus began a 28-year journey that culminated with the publication of Eight Paths of Purpose, which seeks to help others understand the variety of ways we can fulfill our purpose, and how central this is to our core being. Now the executive director of 34 Chabad Centers on Long Island (New York), Rabbi Teldon regularly shares insights on his weekly Cablevision Long Island talk show, The Jewish Spotlight, on social media, and through his many classes and speaking engagements. He also presented a four-part course on Chabad.org (Your Path to Purpose) which had over 3,000 students, and has contributed to Long Island Business News. He and his wife Chaya, a global speaker who appeared on Oprah, live in Commack, Long Island near their five adult children and a growing family tree of grandchildren.
