Yearnings : A perfect love, enduring happiness, discovering our purpose. Yearning for these experiences accompanies us through life, leading us to joy, and sometimes disappointment. And though they may never be fully satisfied, these desires can lead to a powerful vision of who we are, and who we can become. Far from being a burden, our yearnings can themselves become a path to blessing, prompting questions and insights, resulting new ways of being and believing. In Yearnings, renowned rabbi Irwin Kula explores and celebrates seven of our deepest desires. He opens the spiritual toolbox of Jewish wisdom and uncovers the yearnings that gave rise to great religious traditions and such spiritual leaders as Buddha, Moses, and Jesus.
