“...a rare jewel, a powerhouse of spiritual wisdom
that you can read and reread.”
“A master teacher.”—Thomas Keating
“A prophetic voice for a 21st century Judaism.” —Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
“...presents a universal wisdom with a distinctly Jewish
flavor. This is a book to read and share.”
“...invites us into the most intimate of settings, the whispered wisdom passed from an authentic Hasidic master to his student. It radiates warmth, passion for the Divine and earthy confidence in sacredness. A treasure for the spiritual seeker of any tradition.” —Judith Simmer-Brown, The Dakini’s Warm Breath
The fictional East European Hasidic master Reb Yerachmiel writes to his Hasid Herschel who has moved to America, in response to his student’s questions about God, what it means to be Jewish, whether all religions are true, death, the soul, good deeds, intermarriage and more. At the urging of his own rebbe, Shapiro, through these letters, creates a Judaism for people who wish to learn from it as they do from Buddhism or Sufism, a Judaism for everyone.
Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro is regarded as one of the most creative voices in contemporary Judaism. He is an award-winning poet and essayist and his litergies are used in prayer services throughout North America. His previous books include Minyan: 10 Principles for Living a Life of Integrity, and The Way of Solomon: Finding Joy and Contentment in the Wisdom of Ecclesiastes.
