Dancing with God is a visionary plan and a practical how-to guide for entering into Judaism's coming new age, Neshamah, or Soul, Judaism. Rabbi Wayne Dosick deftly and sweetly shows us how to rediscover and renew authentic Jewish spiritual beliefs and practices - prayer and meditation, rituals and observances, songs, stories and dance - that lead to a heightened awareness of self, a deep communal and cosmic connection, and an intimate soul-relationship with God. Dancing with God is the book that will shape the Jewish world's dialogue with and practice of Jewish spirituality, Jewish renewal, and the Jewish future by taking each one of us on a journey to the place where God bathes our souls in love and brings wholeness and holiness to the very core of our beings.

From the author of Living Judaism : The first easy-to-use guide to reclaiming and renewing the spiritual practices that can make everday life whole and holy -- within the Jewish tradition.
Dosick eloquently argues that with the Jewish Renewal and Chavurah movements, Judaism is on the threshold of the next stage of its history -- that of Spiritual (or Soul) Judaism. Institutional Judaism today, he observes, leaves many Jews spiritually empty and seeking sustenance elsewhere. What is needed is the "right Judaism," a spirituality that is already in the tradition: in texts, prayers, rituals, practices, music and "sounds of silence" -- a Judaism of sacred pathways that lead each person to a celebratory experience of community and an intimate relationship with God. Dosick's lively, do-it yourself approach to spirituality is full of simple exercises and suggestions to help every Jew discover the rich and vibrant meaning of the Jewish way and incorporate it into everyday life.
"The old must be made new, and the new must be made sacred": Dosick makes legendary Rav Kook's challenge relevant today. Here, he shows how the vital connection to the sacred can be rejuvenated and practiced day to day.
