Rodger Kamenetz continues the dazzling spiritual adventures he began in "The Jew in the Lotus," his bestselling account of the historical dialogue between rabbis and the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala. In "Stalking Elijah," Kamenetz takes his wild mind on the road, seeking the counsel of spiritual teachers across the country as he searches for his own Jewish truth. Entertaining, illuminating, and deeply moving, "Stalking Elijah" takes us all on a remarkable journey through the new landscape of Jewish practice.

Synopsis:

Following the success of his immensely popular The Jew in the Lotus, in which he chronicled the historic dialogue between rabbis and the Dalai Lama, Kamenetz struck out on an audacious spiritual quest to ultimately answer the question: How does one live in the modern world and hold onto one's Jewish faith? The result is this "spiritually intoxicating book" (Forward) that will provoke and inspire readers to dig down for the richness of their own spiritual traditions.
