Product description

Jewish Tales of Mystic Joy reveals the happiness that awaits us if we strive for real spirituality. The stories are about pious rabbis and humble tailors, about dancing, singing, laughing, and crying, but their common denominator is always joyous ecstasy. Drawing us into a world of devotion, the tales allow us to taste the bliss that comes from a life lived from the very center of one's self. Each story comes alive in joy and produces a "holy shiver" that speaks to the soul. Can mysticism be joyful, even fun? According to storyteller Yitzhak Buxbaum, the editor of this inspiring collection of tales, Jewish mysticism leads to bliss, ecstasy, happiness, and humor. These traditional tales about people who "went all the way" will let you taste the mystic joy that accompanies intense devotion and life lived to the very fullest. Profound and entertaining, these stories prove that ecstatic laughter and ecstatic mourning come from the same pot and that only deep spiritual experience, only joy, can lead you to your own spiritual fulfillment.
Yitzhak Buxbaum is a traditional storyteller and teacher, who specializes in mysticism, spirituality, and Hasidic tales. This stunning collection contains tales that portray the mystic joy that comes from a passionate love for God and people.
