    1. My biggest "beef" with the book is that it's not what I thought it was. It describes itself as "a guide to meaningful Jewish practice," but it's really an Introduction to Judaism book. It's not a tool for people already Jewishly-committed to deepen their practice. I was let down, but the first couple of chapters were somewhat helpful. The later chapterst so much.My primary annoyance with the book is that there is never a current description of the author and his perspective on Judaism. There is [...]


    2. Disclaimer: I am not Jewish. I respect and admire Judaism, though, and if I could just bring myself not to be such an atheist, I would certainly convert to Judaism. This book will obviously speak mostly to Jews, but even a goyim can get something out it. Rebbe Schachter has a bright and enlightened view of worship that some have written off as "new-agey", but that is a mistake on their part. This is a solid Talmudic scholar trained in the Old World ways of yeshiva and hasidim and his background [...]


    3. What a wonderful, peaceful book! I relished this reflection on what it means for Rab Zalman to be Jewish, how he thinks of Judaism's place in the world - the challenges and gifts of his tradition - and his encompassing affection for everyone who is searching for a life of the spirit. While some of the book is directed toward those who are Jewish and looking for a rejuvenated understanding / expression of their faith and tradition, the book is also a doorway to communication between different fai [...]


    4. This book was amazing. I loved how accessible it was to everyone. As someone with a minimal Jewish upbringing, I didn't feel excluded from its message or wisdom. It is practical, honest, and inspiring.I was first introduced to this author as one of the members of a group that travels to Dharamsala, India to talk to the Dalai Lama about Judaism in The Jew In the Lotus, which I recommend for those interested in the crossover between Judaism and Buddhism.


    5. Interesting book. I read through it, skipping over chunks. I started reading this looking for a way to connect with hashem. The first part of the book, that focused on that aspect kind of eluded me. However, the second part of the book was amazing. I loved reading about how he prayed with people of different religions. I love the environmentalist aspects as well. Glad I read it.


    6. very energizing and exciting stuff. more of an apologia than i need at this point--seems pitched to a less-engaged audience. but ZSS has amazing insights and metaphors for what spiritual practice is/can be, and really charming suggestions for meaningful practice. he embodies this beautiful marriage of old-world Yiddish culture and ultra-progressive philosophy. this is sort of "intro to Reb Zalman" so it's probably better to read more advanced stuff, but truly this is a sweet and insightful argum [...]


    7. This is, hands down, the most inspiring book I have ever read about Jewish practice. The author's enthusiasm and acceptance of all levels of Jewish practice is infectious, and he very gently lays out ideas and opinions without pressure or "shoulds". Rabbi Zalman is so positive about other faiths as well, and I love how he stresses that all humans should learn from each other. Definitely my kind of Judaism!


    8. One of my favorite books on spirituality. Written by a Reconstructionist rabbi, this book shows how people of all faiths can come together in worship without sacrificing their individual beliefs. A terrific read for anyone who is looking for a "how to" on spirituality.


    9. I'm not Jewish but I've studied the religion extensively. Perhaps it's because I'm a liberal outsider, but I loved this book. Its insight into spiritual practice was easy to understand and even implement in my own life.


    10. Expected a little more new material and fire from Reb Zalman, though of course plenty of pearls in here. Ok, but don't run out and grab it if you already are familiar with his work. Start with something else by him.




    11. I love this updating of Judaism. I know that I will come back to it again and again, to bring new spirit to my observance. And that I will share insights with friends, both Jewish and not Jewish.
