Rabbi Nancy Flam is cofounder of the National Center for Jewish Healing and former director of the Jewish Community Healing Program of Ruach Ami Bay Area Jewish Healing Center. She cofounded the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, was its founding director, and now serves as codirector of programs. She edited the Jewish Lights series of pastoral-care pamphlets, LifeLights, and writes and teaches widely on Judaism, healing, prayer, spirituality, and social justice.

Arthur Green, PhD, is recognized as one of the world's preeminent authorities on Jewish thought and spirituality. He is the Irving Brudnick professor of philosophy and religion at Hebrew College and rector of the Rabbinical School, which he founded in 2004. Professor emeritus at Brandeis University, he also taught at the University of Pennsylvania and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, where he served as dean and president.

He is long associated with the Havurah movement and a neo-Hasidic approach to Judaism.

Reviews

"A refreshingly original and profound presentation of the work of [this] Hasidic master.... Slater translates and explains the text brilliantly."
-Jonathan Omer-Man, founder, Metivta: A Center for Contemplative Judaism

"An extraordinary resource for a journey of discovering the power of Torah to open minds, hearts and souls, and maybe even change lives."
-Rabbi Laura Geller, Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

"The wisdom here is real and deep, the love is nourishing and transparent. A double treasure: two mindful giants joining to reverberate the wisdom of ages past into the crevices of our hungry hearts."
-Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, DHL, vice president, American Jewish University; author, God of Becoming and Relationship: The Dynamic Nature of Process Theology

"Slater is meticulous as translator, patient and unhurried as expositor, and compassionately open-hearted as spiritual guide-just the kind of person you would trust to lead you on the most important, most exhilarating trek of all. [This book] is exactly that: a good friend, haver tov-the highest accolade in the Hasidic path."
-Nehemia Polen, professor of Jewish thought, Hebrew College

"God may have split the Reed Sea once, but Slater splits open the ocean of Reb Levi Yitzhak with every page of this book! He compassionately stewards a call for personal responsibility, integrity and ownership as we surrender to the Call of the Divine."
-Reb Mimi Feigelson, Mashpia Ruchanit (www.zieglertorah.org)
