Long­ing: Jew­ish Med­i­ta­tions on a Hid­den God

  • From the Publisher
March 29, 2018

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.
