Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook (1865-1935), the celebrated first Chief Rabbi of pre-state Israel, is recognized as being among the most important Jewish thinkers of all times. His writings reflect the mystic s search for underlying unity in all aspects of life and the world, and his unique personality similarly united a rare combination of talents and gifts. Rav Kook was a prominent rabbinical authority and active public leader, but at the same time, a deeply religious mystic. He was both Talmudic scholar and poet, original thinker and saintly tzaddik.

Rav Kook s writings, due to their poetic and mystical nature, are difficult even for those fluent in Hebrew and rabbinical texts. Gold from the Land of Israel uses a clear, succinct style to grant the reader a window into his original and creative insights. This book elucidates his thoughts on many fascinating topics, including:
  • Can we reconcile the Torah s account of creation with modern science?
  • What is the Torah s view on vegetarianism?
  • What is the purpose of death?
  • Why do bad things happen to good people?
  • Why do we have dreams?
  • Will the Third Temple have animal sacrifices?
  • Who is God?
  • How can one attain joy in serving God?
  • How should we balance our time between Torah study and work?
  • Why must kohanim avoid cemeteries?

  • By Rabbi Chanan Morrison
