9781580237956: A Partner in Holiness: Deepening Mindfulness, Practicing Compassion and Enriching Our Lives Through the Wisdom of R. Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev's, Vol. 2 (Institute for Jewish Spirituality)

Find inspiration for a satisfying spiritual life of practice through the combination of contemporary mindfulness meditation and classical Hasidic spirituality.

"The lessons in Kedushat Levi were not originally intended as intellectual curiosities or as demonstrations of R. Levi Yitzhak's brilliance. They were meant to inspire religious passion and deeper spiritual practice. I believe that these teachings will come to life in us when we bring them into our lives in practice."

―from the Introduction

The soul yearns to feel connected to something greater and to know happiness despite personal suffering and seemingly endless need. Surprisingly, the perspectives of the late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Hasidic spiritual teachers offer a radically different Jewish theology that speaks directly to today's spiritual seekers whose faith has been shattered by both modernity and the Holocaust. These masters taught of interdependence, interconnectedness, selflessness, service and joy, anticipating the insights of contemporary science and twenty-first-century spirituality.

Bringing together the teachings of beloved Hasidic master Rabbi Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev (1740–1809) and the practice of mindfulness meditation, Rabbi Jonathan P. Slater reveals a new entrance into Jewish spiritual life. Covering the Five Books of Moses, these two volumes present accessible translations of selections from Kedushat Levi, R. Levi Yitzhak's Hasidic Torah commentary, which emphasizes our spiritual capacity to transform consciousness and so our life experience. The selections are paired with Rabbi Slater's commentaries to illuminate their message.

He is long associated with the Havurah movement and a neo-Hasidic approach to Judaism.

Review:

"The rediscovery of Hasidic texts as Jewish sources for contemporary spirituality will be greatly aided by [this] book.... It is almost as if the teacher were present in the same room with the student. Levi Isaac would be pleased."
Rabbi Michael Strassfeld, author, A Book of Life: Embracing Judaism as a Spiritual Practice

"Create[s] a powerful spiritual language for the twenty-first century.... Offers a way to wake up to life that will transform the Jewish people and speak to all seekers."
Rabbi Barbara Penzner, Temple Hillel B'nai Torah, West Roxbury, Massachusetts

"Skillfully presents us with practical tools to use mindfulness and Torah to craft a path of daily practice to realize a spiritual life. In so doing, the reader who uses these tools in their life will be able to directly experience their connection to the Divine while making a positive impact on the world."
Rabbi Jeff Roth, author, Jewish Meditation Practices for Everyday Life: Awakening Your Heart, Connecting with God

"Offers us a beautiful blend of erudition and spiritual wisdom.... This book has everything a contemporary student of Jewish spirituality needs: serious Torah, tools to aid understanding of the text, and a wealth of suggestions for how to allow the Rebbe's teachings to invigorate and transform our own spiritual lives."
Rabbi Amy Eilberg, author, From Enemy to Friend: Jewish Wisdom on the Pursuit of Peace

"Deeply wise and inspired.... This is not a book to 'read.' It is a nourishing wellspring. Return to it again and again as you grow and deepen your practice and water the garden of your soul."
Marcia Prager, author, The Path of Blessing: Experiencing the Energy and Abundance of the Divine
