Echoes of Eden: Sefer Bereishit
What was the pre-sin world like, and what is the way of return? How could God have demanded that Avraham sacrifice his son? Why would Yaakov favor Yosef when he saw the jealousy it created? Drawing upon the vast reservoir of rabbinic literature from Talmud to Midrash, from Zohar to the hasidic masters Rabbi Ari Kahn combines the mystical explorations of kabbalah and hasidism with a highly intellectual and broad-minded approach to Torah study. Plumbing the depths of Jewish sources, Rabbi Kahn provides fascinating answers to age-old questions, infusing the parshah with fresh significance. Through provoking questions and intriguing insights, Rabbi Kahn continually inspires us to seek the Godly in our lives.
