Reviews

This clearly written work is a comprehensive study of Jewish meditation, offering an in-depth study of Jewish meditative practices through history. Rabbi Pinson (Inner Rhythms: The Kabbalah of Music), currently the Rosh Kollel Dean of Advanced Studies in Vancouver, Canada, offers a refreshingly substantive addition to a field rife with misinformation. Pinson refers to various secular thinkers, but his great strength lies in his masterly knowledge of the Jewish sages, among them the seven Chabad Rebbes, the Maharal, the Baal Shem Tov, the Malbim, the Rosh, and many others. He traces the historical evolution of meditation in Jewish thought, showing how these Jewish sages have addressed the subject. Pinson also shows expert familiarity with classic Jewish texts, such as the Tanakh, mishnah, Bavli, Zohar, and Sefer Yetzirah. A welcome addition to the field of meditation and Judaism, this scholarly book is recommended for synagogue libraries, meditation centers, and public libraries with deep collections in Judaica.-David B.
