Synopsis

A window into the Jewish soulwritten especially for Christians.

I invite you to explore with me some of the rich and varied expressions of the Jewish spiritual imagination. It is a tradition that may at times, for Christians, feel strangely familiar and will, for Christians and Jews, always challenge you to see yourself and your world through a new lens.
from the Introduction

Jewish spirituality is an approach to life that encourages us to become aware of Gods presence and purpose, even in unlikely places. This world and everything in it is a manifestation of Gods presence, says Rabbi Lawrence Kushner. Our challenge and goal is to find it and then act in such a way as to help others find it too.

In this special book, Kushner guides Christians through the rich wisdom of Jewish spirituality. He tailors his unique style to address Christians questions, and, in doing so, opens new windows on their own faith.

Jewish Spirituality is a window into the Jewish soul that people of all faiths can understand and enjoy. From the Talmud and Torah, to repentence (teshuva) and repairing the world (tikkun olam), Kushner shows all of us how we can use the fundamentals of Jewish spirituality to enrich our own lives.

Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, one of the most widely read authors on Jewish spiritual life, is the Emanu-El Scholar at San Franciscos Congregation Emanu-El and visiting professor of Jewish spirituality at the Graduate Theological Union. He is the bestselling author of such books for adults as Filling Words with Light: Hasidic and Mystical Reflections on Jewish Prayer; Honey from the Rock: An Introduction to Jewish Mysticism; The Book of Letters: A Mystical Hebrew Alphabet; and The Way Into Jewish Mystical Tradition (all Jewish Lights), among many others. His childrens books include Because Nothing Looks Like God (with Karen Kushner) and In Gods Hands(with Gary Schmidt) (both Jewish Lights), among many others.
