"Love's Voice" is a doorway to kabbalah for readers at all levels of experience. Acclaimed novelist Richard Zimler uses the form of haiku to distill kabbalistic philosophy into its most poetic forms, providing a rare and deeply affectiving experience to the reader.
The seventy-two haiku in the book require no special knowledge of kabbalah or, indeed, of any Jewish culture. Readers who do have some background in kabbalah will find additional - and sometimes hidden - references and meanings in many of these verses.
"Zimler's haiku are themselves sparks of divine light that illumine kabbalistic teachings. They open us up to truths and ameliorate suffering." Rabbi Jacob Staub, prefessor of Jewish philosophy and spirituality, Reconstructionist rabbinical college.
"Mysterious, intriguing, funny and delightful." Andrew Solomon, author of "The Noonday Demon"
