New Book Published! Everyone in Love: The Beautiful Theology of Rav Yehuda Lev Ashlag



This is a book I’ve self-published on a great but little known Jewish theologian, Yehuda Lev Ashlag. He is known in some circles for his work on the mystical text the Zohar, and in others as the inspiration behind the teachings of some universalist “pop” Kabbalah movements (which is why Madonna visits his grave every year). His writings deserve more thorough study and serious attention, however, as he articulates a fascinating and radical perspective on many core Jewish themes which is rooted in classical thinkers like the Arizal, the Ramchal, Hasdai Crescas, and Chasidut, but goes beyond them in some respects to present a startling systematic theology of Judaism and Jewish spiritual practice.

This book is based on a lecture series that I taught in Vancouver.
