Jewish Mysticism and the Spiritual Life

Classical Texts, Contemporary Reflections
  • By Dr Lawrence Fine, Dr Eitan Fishbane
The Jewish mystical tradition is still speaking to us.

" Spirituality] is, first and foremost, a yearning to connect to the deep essence of things, a sense that there is a layer of existence that lies concealed beneath the surface of perception. It is this same quality that is reflected in the mystical sensibility . It is, however, important to emphasize that the mystical dimensions of Judaism do not separate easily, if at all, from the traditional structures of the religion."

from the Introduction

In this thoughtful and lucid exploration of the Jewish mystical tradition, leading scholars and teachers come together to share their favorite texts many available in English for the first time and explore why these materials are meaningful and relevant to contemporary life.

The rich combination of classical texts and contemporary reflections will provide you with inspirational and thought-provoking materials for contemplation, discussion and action, whether you are well-acquainted with Jewish mysticism or encountering it for the first time.
