Rabbi Alexander Seinfeld grew up in Tacoma, Wash., and graduated from Stanford with degrees in Classics and Anthropology. After college he taught in rural Mississippi, 'surrounded by people who knew my people's Book better than I did.' By this time, he had all but abandoned Judaism and considered himself a Buddhist. Eventually, a worldwide voyage in search of his roots lead him to Jerusalem where he studied for seven years at several yeshivas and received ordination from Talmudicist R. Zalman Nehemia Goldberg. Rabbi Seinfeld returned to the San Francisco Bay area in 2000 to teach in adult Jewish education. A year ago, he published The Art of Amazement: Judaism's Forgotten Spirituality and since then has been wowing audiences around the world with a seminar of the same name. Rabbi Seinfeld recently moved to Baltimore with his wife and children. Part 2 of Rabbi Seinfeld's critically-acclaimed audio series on Jewish spirituality. In this studio recording, the author presents the classical Jewish definition of love that can improve any relationship. He then demonstrates how the familiar 'Shema Yisroel' is in fact an ancient meditation that opens the doors of perception to the Ultimate, Infinite Love. The CD would be helpful to anyone who has read the book, The Art of Amazement, but also stands alone. The book and audio series is a step-by-step manual on how to nurture a sense of amazement every day, in every area of life. Readers begin to see Judaism as a masterful ancient spiritual system for unleashing the power of amazement. Whether you merely wish to take a look or you want to step inside, The Art of Amazement is a unique doorway to the depths of Jewish tradition. Anyone with a serious interest in Kabbalah would also find this recording valuable.
