... And Then I Found Jewish Mysticism

By Doris Kurzman Caplan

Eugene Borowitz, February 17, 1978

The author describes her personal spiritual journey, recounting that she once intended to become a Christian nun, finding no deep spiritual connection in Judaism. Reading Martin Buber opened the door for her to Jewish mysticism, she reports, and this has allowed her to feel at home in the Jewish faith. Many American Jews are hungry for spiritual meaning, she argues, and the American Jewish community ought to do more to make Jewish mysticism, Hasidism and spirituality accessible.
