Why am I? What is life all about? What do I need to do to love and be loved? After years of careful study, David Aaron provides the answers to those questions as revealed in the Kabbalah, the mystical teachings that interpret the five books of Moses - the Torah. Rich in stories of David Aaron's own personal experiences as a husband, father, teacher, and spiritual mentor, Endless Light offers us a new and deeper awareness of ourselves, our inner conflicts, and the choices we must make to understand and receive life's bounteous gifts. The author also retells the familiar stories of the Torah - the Creation, the Expulsion from Eden, and many others - clarifying their mysterious meanings and deciphering what they teach us about ourselves and how to fulfill our purpose in life. He shares the Kabbalah's wisdom about how to truly love and be loved; he addresses the conflict between the powers of fate and free will. And he describes the steps along the path of life that will lead us to spiritual growth, creativity, freedom, happiness, and inner peace.

    I studied with Rabbi David Aaron at his Isralight Institute, so I can say with authority that the writing style in this, his first book, is exactly like his speaking style. He makes the spiritual concepts of Kabbalah accessible because he relates them to everyday life experiences. And he’s funny. The title of his first chapter is “What’s It All About?” “No sense starting small,” he begins. Then he devotes the next three chapters to explaining why G-d created humanity.

He makes the spiritual concepts of Kabbalah accessible because he relates them to everyday life experiences. And he’s funny. The title of his first chapter is “What’s It All About?” “No sense starting small,” he begins. Then he devotes the next three chapters to explaining why G-d created humanity. The main concept is the Kabbalistic “tzimtzum,” which literally means “contraction,” but Rabbi Aaron explains it as “making space.” If you love someone, you make space for him in your life, even if he gets on your nerves sometimes. That’s exactly what G-d did in creating us. My favorite chapters are on the theme of fate vs. choice. Rabbi Aaron quotes the famous line from Shakespeare, “All the world's a stage and the men and women merely players." “The word ‘merely’ disparages our role,” he says. Our actions have tremendous impact in this world. To illustrate this, he tells stories of how people live their lives, some from modern times and some Torah examples, specifically Joseph and Queen Esther. The conclusion of that chapter is especially inspiring: “There is fate - a clear direction, a goal, a plan. What's going to be is going to be. But how it's going to happen is ...our choice ... It is a very basic Kabbalistic idea: The evolution of the world of love will go on no matter what. But you have a choice. Do you want to have a role in it, or not?...What role do you choose to play? The hero? The villain? The protagonist? The antagonist?...That is your choice.” This is only a taste of the insights to be found in Endless Light. People with all levels of exposure to traditional Jewish scholarship can appreciate it. Like much about Kabbalah, Endless Light embodies a contradiction. It’s stimulating and profound yet a fast and easy read.

    This is one of the best books ever written. No matter what a person's faith or religious beliefs they can benefit from this book. It is a great book for those with an interest in the Kabbalah that do not want to do an intense study into it but want to get the main gist of things, from a spiritual standpoint. It is also a great self help book. Read it, you won't be sorry. This is one of the best books ever written. No matter what a person's faith or religious beliefs they can benefit from this book.

    A beautiful and lucid explanation of Kabbalah and relationships. This book does not require that you become a kabbalist. It does ask you to open your heart to a possibility of manifesting love in a new and meaningful way. Exercises at the end of the chapters allow for a deeper engagement with his thesis.

    I had borrowed this from a friend and was just picking it up infrequently, and then he wanted it back. I was liking it though. It was written in a really accessible way and the concepts were right and good.

    Words for thought. Examples author gives make the thought he tries to pass on understandable.

    Brilliant...even though I don't practice Kabbalah. It has the most beautiful and idealistic theories on love and partnership. Brilliant...even though I don't practice Kabbalah. It has the most beautiful and idealistic theories on love and partnership.
