Contemporary American Judaism

Transformation and Renewal

No longer controlled by a handful of institutional leaders based in remote headquarters and rabbinical seminaries, American Judaism is being transformed by the spiritual decisions of tens of thousands of Jews living all over the United States. A pulpit rabbi and himself an American Jew, Dana Evan Kaplan follows this religious individualism from its postwar suburban roots to the hippie revolution of the 1960s and the multiple postmodern identities of today. From Hebrew tattooing to Jewish Buddhist meditation, Kaplan describes the remaking of historical tradition in ways that channel multiple ethnic and national identities. While pessimists worry about the vanishing American Jew, Kaplan focuses on creative responses to contemporary spiritual trends that have made a Jewish religious renaissance possible. He believes that the reorientation of American Judaism has been a "bottom up" process, resisted by elites who have reluctantly responded to the demands of the "spiritual marketplace." The American Jewish denominational structure is therefore weakening at the same time that religious experimentation is rising, leading to the innovative approaches supplanting existing institutions. The result is an exciting transformation of what it means to be a religious American Jew in the twenty-first century.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz is internationally regarded as one of the most brilliant and influential rabbis of our time. He has been lauded by Time magazine as a “once-in-a-millennium scholar” and by Ted Koppel of Night Line as “one of the very few wise men that I’ve ever met.” Arthur Kurzweil—himself a Jewish scholar, author, teacher, and publisher—has been a disciple of Rabbi Steinsaltz’s for over 25 years, as well as the Rabbi’s designated chauffer in the United States. While stuck in countless traffic jams and attending the Rabbi’s lectures at universities, government agencies, synagogues and seminars, Arthur Kurzweil has had the rare opportunity of personally learning from his inspired teacher and has become intimately familiar with the Rabbi’s wisdom and teachings.

Woher komme ich und wohin gehe ich? War ich schon einmal hier? Warum bin ich hier? Kann ich die gesamte Wirklichkeit und den Sinn des Lebens verstehen? Wie kann ich nicht nur Leid vermeiden, sondern auch wahrhaft glucklich und zufrieden werden? Die groten Kabbalisten unserer Zeit, Rav Yehuda Ashlag, Autor des Sulam Kommentars zum Buch Sohar und sein Sohn und Nachfolger, Rav Baruch Ashlag bieten wertvolle und verstandliche Antworten auf diese Fragen. Sie basieren auf den Schriften des Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, Autor des Buches Sohar, und des Heiligen Ari (Rav Izchak Luria), Autor des Buches Baum des Lebens - durch sie lernen wir, wie wir von der Kabbala profitieren, wenn wir sie in unseren Alltag integrieren und umsetzen. Zusatzlich zu den authentischen Texten der erwahnten und anderer groer Kabbalisten bietet das Buch "Kabbala fur Anfanger" Skizzen, die den Aufbau der Hoheren Welten demonstrieren, so wie sie die Kabbalisten wahrnehmen. Das Buch enthalt ebenso einige erklarende Essays, die uns dabei helfen, die authentischen Texte besser zu verstehen. Rav Michael Laitman, PhD, Rav Baruchs personlicher Assistent und Schuler fasste alle Texte, die ein Kabbala Student benotigt, um die spirituellen Welten zu erreichen, zu diesem Buch zusammen. In seinen taglichen Unterrichten grundet Laitman seinen Lehrstoff auf diese inspirierenden Texte und hilft so sowohl Neulingen als auch Fortgeschrittenen auf ihrer Reise zu den Hoheren Welten. Wenn Sie wahrhaft den Sinn Ihres Lebens suchen, wird Ihr Herz Sie durch die Texte der groen Kabbalisten fuhren, die direkt aus ihrem Herzen zu Ihnen sprechen. Durch ihre Worte werden Sie die Essenz und die Kraft des Lebens enthullen und einen Zugang zu Ihrer eigenen ewigen Existenz finden.
