Publisher Comments:

Students of mediation are usually surprised to discover that a Jewish mediation tradition exists and that it was an authentic and integral part of mainstream Judaism until the eighteenth century.


Jewish Meditation is a step-by-step introduction to meditation and the Jewish practice of meditation in particular. This practical guide covers such topics as mantra meditation, contemplation, and visualization within a Jewish context. It shows us how to use meditative techniques to enhance prayer using the traditional liturgy—the Amidah and the Shema. Through simple exercises and clear explanations of theory, Rabbi Kaplan gives us the tools to develop our spiritual potential through an authentically Jewish meditative practice.


Kaplan shows that meditation is consistent with traditional Jewish thought and practice. The book presents a variety of meditative techniques to help make the reader a better person, and develop a closer relationship to God.

KIER8, August 20, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
The author of "Meditation and the Bible" and "Meditation and Kabbalah" , Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan deliberately wrote "Jewish Meditation: A Practical Guide" in nontechnical terms for the layperson. This clear, comprehesive 165 page book assumes that the reader has no special background in Judaism or in meditation. Read it and see how Jewish meditative practices are most relevant to Western man.
