From the Heart
Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak (1865-1935), best known as the first chief rabbi of pre-state Israel, was a truly unique Talmudist, halachist, mystic, poet and Jewish thinker.
In these selections from his spiritual journals, Rav Kook reveals his own yearnings, struggles and deep spiritual passion.
“Yaacov David Shulman is a master translator who is able to capture the language, the poetry and the beauty of Rav Kook’s Hebrew.”
Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb
