What can Kabbalah teach us about our lives today?
What can it teach us about our future?

According to the Jewish mystical tradition of Kabbalah, Ehyeh, or I shall be, is the deepest, most hidden name of God. Arthur Green, one of the most respected teachers of Jewish mysticism of his generation, uses this simple Hebrew word to unlock the spiritual meaning of Kabbalah for our lives.

When Moses experienced his great moment of call at the Burning Bush, he asked God, When people ask me, What is His name? what should I say to them? God answers with this mysterious phrase, I shall be what I shall be, and says to Moses, Tell them that I shall be sent you.

Gods puzzling answer makes the conversation sound like a koan-dialogue between a Zen master and disciple…. Like the koan, the text here is reaching to some place beyond words, seeking to create a breakthrough in our consciousness. What is it trying to tell us?
from the Introduction

Blending Jewish theology and mysticism, Arthur Green invites us on a contemporary exploration of Kabbalah, showing how the ancient Jewish mystical tradition can be retooled to address the needs of our generation.

Drawing on the Zohar and other kabbalistic texts, Green examines the fundamental ideas and spiritual teachings of Kabbalah, encouraging todays modern seeker to stretch to new ways of thinking with both heart and mind, setting us on a rewarding path to the wisdom Kabbalah has to offer.

Arthur Green is the Rector of the Rabbinical School and Professor of Jewish Philosophy and Religion at Hebrew College in Newton MA.
