Dal retro di copertina:
Praise for A Spiritual Life
"Reading Feld, you burst out laughing one minute and wipe away tears the next. Mostly, we recognize ourselves--the messy, complex, uncertain yet precious threads which make up the fabric of our lives ... Feld offers an attention, a connection to one another and to tradition that values the present and the eternal." -- The Jewish Times
"Rarely have I enjoyed the intellectual pleasure I experienced when reading Merle Feld's A Spiritual Life. An inspiration to all of us to take seriously the imperative that the spiritual and the ethical must be intertwined." -- Susannah Heschel, editor of On Being a Jewish Feminist: A Reader
"Stories and poetry so captivating, powerful, wise, you will never be the same. An extraordinary achievement!" -- Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, author of Kabbalah: A Love Story
"This book cannot be pigeonholed ... finding spirituality in the everyday, Feld names experiences shared by many women, yet seldom fully articulated, or articulated this clearly and well." -- Judith Plaskow, author of Standing Again at Sinai: Judaism from a Feminist Perspective
"Merle Feld has written a wonderfully moving tribute to the multifaceted nature of the human soul. Her poems and stories touch something deep within me." -- Blu Greenberg, author of On Women and Judaism: A View from Tradition
"Down-to-earth, honest, courageous ... One traverses the years by her side and is moved as she comes to realize that everything is poetry, that the magic of life lies in its minutia, in the supermarket, in underwear. `Don't forget,' she implores, `we were all at Mount Sinai together.'" -- Hadassah Magazine
"This readers' guide is a feast for widely diverse book groups with its wonderfully provocative questions that inspire deep reflection and heart-to-heart sharing." -- Rachel Jacobsohn, Founder, Association of Book Group Readers and Leaders
