This work offers a systematic description of the highly interesting
mystical doctrine of one of the most influential thinkers in Jewish
mysticism. Two hundred years since Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav's
demise, his philosophical writings and literary creation remain
lively and provocative materials in both Jewish culture and the
New-Age movement. Key elements of Rabbi Nachman's magic and
magnetic force are illuminated in this research, which presents
Bratslavian mysticism as a unique link in the history of Jewish
mysticism. The mystical worldview is the axis of this book, but its
branches stretch out to key issues in the Bratslavian world such as
belief and imagination, dreams and the land of Israel, melodies and
song. The Robert and Arlene Kogod Library of Judaic Studies
publishes new research which provides new directions for modern
Jewish thought and life and which serves to enhance the quality of
dialogue between classical sources and the modern world.This book
series reflects the mission of the Shalom Hartman Institute, a
pluralistic research and leadership institute, at the forefront of
Jewish thought and education. It empowers scholars, rabbis,
educators and layleaders to develop new and diverse voices within
the tradition, laying foundations for the future of Jewish life in
Israel and around the world.
