Publisher's Summary

Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, more affectionately known as Reb Zalman, was originally ordained as an Orthodox rabbi in 1947. That, however, was just the beginning of his spiritual journey and study of world religions. He is spoken of as the “Father” of the Jewish Renewal movement—a post-Holocaust, non-Orthodox Jewish movement that blends kabbalistic and Hasidic elements, while also integrating other practices such as meditation, chant and dance, as well as borrowed elements of Buddhism, Sufism and Christian mysticism. His teachings are more experience than doctrine, a yearning for God, “Faith is tossing out into the future an anticipation for which I don’t have proof.”

This classic audio workshop of Reb Zalman—recorded during a weekend retreat in NYC—is an intriguing collection of prayers, song, stories and inspiration from a great religious teacher—a rare glimpse of the rebbe’s teachings about the cultivation of a living, breathing and evolving faith.

    "Gorgeous opportunity to sit with a teacher"

    This is a wonderful recording of a series of workshop-like teachings from a beautiful teacher. I loved it! Growing up as a Jew in America, in a conservative synagogue, I have always had a mixed relationship with the religion, loving the music and harmonies of song, loving Jews and the cultural heritage, loving the rites of passage of b'nai mitzvah, the opportunity to be analytical of scripture, etc, but always being forced away in disgust at the inherent patriarchical nature of it all, as well as just not feeling as though I could connect on a personal and spiritual level to many of the teachings. I have found here a renewed hope and excitement at the mystical lens of the renewal movement, helping me to find the deep meaning in life and the Jewish traditions that I have always craved. This was just a taste. I want more.
