This book weaves together personal narrative, Jewish mysticism, biblical stories and a range of Jewish thinkers to reflect on the hidden God at the heart of Jewish tradition. It elicits the universal experience of yearning for closeness to someone or some being that we feel we need, but are never sure exists. Along the way, the book takes us on a journey that has us think about our relationships to our parents, to those whom we love, to the sources of Judaism, to God, and ultimately to the “Nothingness” that is, in fact, everything.
