Jewish Mysticism and the Spiritual Life
JEWISH MYSTICISM AND THE SPIRITUAL LIFE: CLASSICAL TEXTS, CONTEMPORARY REFLECTIONS
Edited by Lawrence Fine, Eitan Fishbane, and Or N. Rose
Jewish Lights, 2010
The editors have assembled some of the most creative spiritual thinkers in the Jewish world — including Tikkun authors such as Shaul Magid, Sheila Peltz Weinberg, Lawrence Kushner, Judith Kates, Daniel Matt, Everett Gendler, and Nehemia Polen — and given them a brilliant task: to share with us some of the most significant classical texts of Jewish mysticism and to provide their own interpretations and reflections. The result is a masterpiece that could itself become a classic text of Jewish spiritual thinking. Put together in honor of Arthur Green, this collection, which closes with thoughts from Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, is a must for anyone serious about Jewish spiritual thought.
