From the venerated Jerusalem Torah scholar and Kabbalist Rabbi Yaakov Hillel comes an extraordinary new book. Drawing from Torah, Midrash, Mussar, and Kabbalah sources, he guides us through our Jewish spiritual journey - through this world and into the next.
Like Jacob's ladder, which was firmly planted on earth but reached the heavens, these essays show us how living a truly Jewish life will bring us to the spiritual heights we long for, without ever losing sight of the ground - a healthy life and home. In an inspiring and engaging manner, Rabbi Hillel shows us how we can climb that ladder rung by rung.
Covering such topics as the Jewish holiday cycle, Shabbat, prayer, the study of Kabbalah, and the role of the Jewish woman, "Ascending Jacob's Ladder" illuminates every aspect of Torah life.
