The Inner Journey: Views from the Jewish Tradition

by Rabbi Jack Bemporad VALUE: $24.95
CHAVURAH BETH SHALOM STORE PRICE: $15.00

The Inner Journey: Views from the Jewish Tradition gathers teachings, interviews, poems, parables, art work, and books for further study and reflection. In the introduction, Editor Jack Bemporad states: "Spirituality is inner growth nurtured by ethical behavior, which in turn nurtures the Divine spark within us. It deals with those potentialities in our natures that elevate us in moral worth and dignity and link us to God. The blossoming of that is what makes us uniquely human, the taking upon ourselves the tasks of character development, the paths of righteousness, the acceptance of responsibility to live an ethical life." Rabbi Bemporad then discusses the importance of the Torah, the inwardness at the heart of spirituality, the good and evil intention, and the love of God and neighbor in Judaism. The book contains material by many favorite Jewish teachers including Martin Buber, Abraham Joshua Heschel, and Rabbi Nachman along with fine interviews with Adin Steinsaltz, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Zalman chachter-Shalomi, and Elie Wiesel.
