The Journey Home

Discovering the Deep Spiritual Wisdom of the Jewish Tradition

Author: Lawrence Hoffman

One of Reform Judaism’s Signifcant Jewish Books

Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman is widely recognized as a leader in bringing spiritual innovation into modern Jewish life and worship. Now, drawing on a lifetime of study, he explores the Jewish way of being in the world-the Jewish relationship to God and to questions of human purpose that lie just below the surface of biblical and rabbinic literature.

“Through seamless excursions into history, law, comparative religion, art, music, literature, psychology, sociology and philosophy, he examines the Jewish way of ‘mapping reality’ to meet our most important challenge: finding shape in our lives. . . . Hoffman’s lucid and eloquent interpretations will appeal to Jewish and non-Jewish readers searching to understand Judaism and to ‘connect the dots’ in their own lives.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Hoffman’s analysis of Jewish spiritual wisdom and its relevance to today’s world is both lucid and perceptive.” —George Cohen, Booklist
