"A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest―a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness…" ~ Albert Einstein
When Rabbi Naomi Levy came across this poignant letter by Einstein it shook her to her core. His words perfectly captured what she has come to believe about the human condition: That we are intimately connected, and that we are blind to this truth. Levy wondered what had elicited such spiritual wisdom from a man of science. Thus began a three-year search into the mystery of Einstein's letter, and into the mystery of the human soul. What emerges is an inspiring, deeply affecting book for people of all faiths filled with universal truths that will help us reclaim our own souls and glimpse the unity that has been evading us.
Naomi Levy's latest book is Einstein and the Rabbi. She is the author of the national bestseller To Begin Again, as well as Talking to God and Hope Will Find You.
Naomi is the founder and leader of Nashuva, a groundbreaking Jewish spiritual outreach movement based in Los Angeles. She was named one of the top-fifty rabbis in America by Newsweek and has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today show and NPR.
She was in the first class of women to enter the Jewish Theological Seminary's rabbinical school and the first woman in her movement to head a congregation on the West Coast.
