Publisher Description

A spiritual journey--both deeply personal and strikingly universal. One of Israel’s leading cultural figures, Dov Elbaum grew up in an ultra-Orthodox Jerusalem family, and was a prodigy who seemed destined for greatness in the world of Talmud study. But in his latte teens, he abruptly broke away and set off into secular Israeli society. In this fascinating, courageous and completing autobiography, Elbaum seeks to understand his decision and its consequences. With the structure of Kabbalah as his road map, Elbuam journeys into the deep recesses of his self and his soul. The ultimate goal of his journey is “the Void”, a Kabbalistic space that precedes God’s creation of the world, and a psychological state that precedes our formation as individual. It is a space of great vulnerability but also of hope for rebirth and renewal. This is an intimate, honest, revealing work, both deeply personal and strikingly universal. The Hebrew edition was a bestseller and sold over 50,000 copies.
