These aphoristic gleanings of ancient and mystical philosophy- written in the form of haiku by award-winning novelist Richard Zimler- capture the heart of the tradition in ways that are personally awakening.
Love’s Voice is a doorway to Kabbalah for readers at all levels of experience. Acclaimed novelist Richard Zimler uses the form of haiku to distill Kabbalistic philosophy into its most essential form, providing a rare and deeply affecting experience of the wisdom of the ages.
These seventy-two haiku require no special knowledge of Kabbalah or, indeed, of Jewish culture. Readers who do have some background in Kabbalah will find additional-and sometimes hidden-references and meanings in many of these verses. Every passage in Love’s Voice verse is a memorable meditation that will touch each reader in a different way. Here is a greatly original yet historically framed entry point to an extraordinary mystical tradition.
