This work offers a systematic description of the highly interesting mystical doctrine of one of the most influential thinkers in Jewish mysticism. Two hundred years since Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav's demise, his philosophical writings and literary creation remain lively and provocative materials in both Jewish culture and the New-Age movement. Key elements of Rabbi Nachman's magic and magnetic force are illuminated in this research, which presents Bratslavian mysticism as a unique link in the history of Jewish mysticism. The mystical worldview is the axis of this book, but its branches stretch out to key issues in the Bratslavian world such as belief and imagination, dreams and the land of Israel, melodies and song. The Robert and Arlene Kogod Library of Judaic Studies publishes new research which provides new directions for modern Jewish thought and life and which serves to enhance the quality of dialogue between classical sources and the modern world.This book series reflects the mission of the Shalom Hartman Institute, a pluralistic research and leadership institute, at the forefront of Jewish thought and education. It empowers scholars, rabbis, educators and layleaders to develop new and diverse voices within the tradition, laying foundations for the future of Jewish life in Israel and around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mark's book constitutes a very significant contribution to our understanding of Nahman's world. It not only goes a long way in balancing the rather one-sided picture painted by earlier scholars, but also provides a very penetrating analysis of the major foundations of Nahman's faith and practice." The Jerusalem Post, February 2010. See the full review at http: //www.jpost.com/ArtsAndCulture/Books/Article.aspx?id=167802
'Zvi Mark is this generation's leading scholar on the ever-fascinating life and teachings of Rabbi Nahman. Both his new textual discoveries and his perceptive readings of them are truly eye-opening. I highly recommend his work!' - Arthur Green, rector of Hebrew College's Rabbinical School and Irving Brudnick Professor of Philosophy and Religion
