Torah and Dharma: Jewish Seekers in Eastern Religions
In Torah and Dharma: Jewish Seekers in Eastern Religions, psychologist Dr. Judith Linzer explores the phenomenon of Jews seeking spiritual fulfillment in Eastern religions, particularly Buddhism. Written with the intention of encouraging unity and understanding amongst all Jews, Torah and Dharma will allow those who are not seeking meaning outside of traditional Judaism to better understand those who are, and it will provide comfort and inspiration to those embarking on a spiritual quest of their own.
