Rabbi's Book Corner

People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks

people of the book by geraldine brooks

Inspired by a true story, People of the Book is a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and intimate emotional intensity by an acclaimed and beloved author. Called “a tour de force” by the San Francisco Chronicle, this ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in fifteenth-century S pain. When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding -an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair-only begin to unlock its deep mysteries.

A great historical novel, letting us into many Jewish worlds of different times and places, in a very engaging way.

6 Jewish Spiritual Paths:
A Rationalist Looks at Spirituality
 
by Rabbi Rifat Sonsino

rationalist looks at spirituality

This is one more great book by Rabbi Sonsino, who is a fellow Reform Rabbi (now Emeritus), whom I have the pleasure to know, as we shared experiences doing rabbinic work in Argentina and in Spain.

As he did in his previous books (Finding GodWhat Happens After I Die?), Rabbi Sonsino offers an engaging presentation of the major paths to spirituality Judaism and the differing way each path can help us on our quest to nourish the soul and enlighten the mind. Acts of transcendence, prayer, meditation, study, ritual, relationship, and good deeds…Which is the best path for you? How can you follow it?
