One of the great innovators in Jewish history writes a practical guide to Jewish living in a modern world.
Scholar, mystic, teacher, friend to spiritual teachers from Thomas Merton to the Dalai Lama, from Ram Dass to the revered Native American elders, Zalman Schachter-Shalomi is himself one of the great spiritual leaders of our time. In Hello God, It's Me, Rabbi Schachter-Shalomi brings the core tenets and practices of Judaism into the twenty-first century. Drawing on a wide range of philosophies and religious traditions, Schachter-Shalomi illuminates the universal aspects of Judaism and shows readers how to apply them to daily life. Emphasizing personal experience over doctrine, he offers sage insight into how Judaism-both old and new-can help us lead satisfying spiritual lives.
Rabbi Schachter-Shalomi acknowledges the complexities of our lives today, which leave many of us with little room for spiritual pursuits, and he gives readers the tools to understand God in a contemporary context. The message is simple: Meaningful practice is the springboard to fulfillment in modern times.
