From the Inside Flap:

A Heart Afire
Stories and Teachings of the Early Hasidic Masters
Translated and Retold with Commentary by
Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and Netanel Miles-Yepez

Foreword by Arthur Green
From the founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement

This intimate guided tour of early Hasidism and Hasidic storytelling gives readers an opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of Hasidic wisdom and narrative. In A Heart Afire, the teachings and tales of old-world Hasidism are richly enhanced by the enlightening insights, interpretations, and personal reflections of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shaolmi, a modern-day Hasidic master and founder of the Jewish Renewal movement, and his disciple Netanel Miles-Yepez, a scholar of comparative religion. Together they add a deeply meaningful dimension to these stories and a facile bridge between old and new interpretations of them.

A Heart Afire explores many of the lesser-known stories and teachings of the first three generations of Hasidism, especially those of the Ba'al Shem Tov, his heirs (male and female), and the students of his successor, the Maggid of Mezritch. Readers get a rare introduction into some of the more radical teachings of these popular Hasidic masters, and insights that connect them to the ecological, ecumenical, and feminist values of the modern world.

Enlightening and spiritually uplifting, A Heart Afire reveals surprising relevancy today in cherished Hasidic wisdom and narrative of the past. Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, better known as Reb Zalman, is the father of the neo-Hasidic Jewish Renewal movement and one of the foremost authorities on Kabbalah and Hasidism. Professor emeritus of the psychology of religion and Jewish mysticism at Temple University and World Wisdom Chair holder emeritus at Naropa University, he is the author of Spiritual Intimacy: A Study of Counseling in Hasidism (1996), and, with Miles-Yepez, Wrapped in a Holy Flame: Teachings and Tales of the Hasidic Masters (2003).

Netanel Miles-Yepez is a scholar of comparative religion, a spiritual counselor, and co-founder (with Reb Zalman) of the Sufi-Hasidic Inayati-Maimuni Tariqat, the only Jewish order of Sufis in the world. In addition to his collaborations with Reb Zalman, he is the editor of The Common Heart: An Experience of Interreligious Dialogue (2006) and Living Fully, Dying Well: Reflecting on Death to Find Your Life's Meaning (2009).
