Foreword by Karen Armstrong
The Schocken Book of Jewish Mystical Testimonies brings together the few accounts we have by Jewish mystics of their encounters with the divine. The sources collected in this volume—spanning two thousand years and including material from Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East—include depictions of peak religious experiences and visions, examples of ecstatic prayer, and counsel on how to keep company with the divine.
Supplemented with commentary by Louis Jacobs, one of the world's most knowledgeable scholars of Jewish mysticism, these accounts offer an exciting new window on Jewish religious experience and inspiration to spiritual seekers of all persuasions.
