For the past ten years, Rabbi Alan Lew has been teaching his congregation how two ancient traditions - classical Jewish writings and Zen meditation - can shed light on each other in electrifying ways. Reading the Torah, Talmud, and Mishnah for what they have to say about our nature and the human condition, Lew finds an open secret embedded in these ancient texts - a deeply relevant guide to spiritual practice that speaks to us in terms that seem surprisingly modern, personal, and full of meaning. And Lew demonstrates how, by combining these insights with the discipline of daily meditation, we can eschew the fears and inner conflicts that plague us, overcome the limitations we set for ourselves, and imbue every moment of life with a sense of the transcendent.
