A symposium on Jewish mysticism held in 1981 by the Lubavitch Foundation
of Great Britain provided the framework for this series of talks.
The resulting essays are unlike academic treatments of Jewish mysticism
in which study is divorced from the life-giving tradition from which it
springs. Addressed to a diverse audience, they deal with the difference
between mysticism and mystical experience, between Jewish and other forms
of mysticism, with meditation, cults, Kabbalah and concepts of the Tanya
as expressed in contemporary idiom.
Includes an introductory letter by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, informative
notes, and a glossary.
