Reviews

"The rediscovery of Hasidic texts as Jewish sources for contemporary spirituality will be greatly aided by [this] book.... It is almost as if the teacher were present in the same room with the student. Levi Isaac would be pleased."
--Rabbi Michael Strassfeld, author, A Book of Life: Embracing Judaism as a Spiritual Practice

"Create[s] a powerful spiritual language for the twenty-first century.... Offers a way to wake up to life that will transform the Jewish people and speak to all seekers."
--Rabbi Barbara Penzner, Temple Hillel B'nai Torah, West Roxbury, Massachusetts

"Skillfully presents us with practical tools to use mindfulness and Torah to craft a path of daily practice to realize a spiritual life. In so doing, the reader who uses these tools in their life will be able to directly experience their connection to the Divine while making a positive impact on the world."
--Rabbi Jeff Roth, author, Jewish Meditation Practices for Everyday Life: Awakening Your Heart, Connecting with God

"Offers us a beautiful blend of erudition and spiritual wisdom.... This book has everything a contemporary student of Jewish spirituality needs: serious Torah, tools to aid understanding of the text, and a wealth of suggestions for how to allow the Rebbe's teachings to invigorate and transform our own spiritual lives."
--Rabbi Amy Eilberg, author, From Enemy to Friend: Jewish Wisdom on the Pursuit of Peace

"Deeply wise and inspired.... This is not a book to 'read.' It is a nourishing wellspring. Return to it again and again as you grow and deepen your practice and water the garden of your soul."
