Who am I? Who is God? Kush­n­er cre­ates inspir­ing inter­pre­ta­tions of Jacob s dream in Gen­e­sis, open­ing a win­dow into Jew­ish spir­i­tu­al­i­ty for peo­ple of all faiths and back­grounds. Jacob lies down in the desert and dreams that angels are ascend­ing and descend­ing a lad­der to heav­en. For thou­sands of years, peo­ple have tried to lis­ten to what mes­sen­gers told Jacob in one of the great mys­ti­cal encoun­ters in West­ern reli­gion. In a fas­ci­nat­ing blend of schol­ar­ship, imag­i­na­tion, psy­chol­o­gy, and his­to­ry, sev­en Jew­ish spir­i­tu­al mas­ters ask and answer fun­da­men­tal ques­tions of human experience.
