In this classic text, Aryeh Kaplan examines the role of this important spiritual tool. The goal of Jewish meditation is to glorify God, to heighten sensitivity to things, and to increase self-understanding. Kaplan assesses the Kabbalistic concept of God as both filling and surrounding all creation. Jews celebrate the immanence of the Divine with blessings.

An excellent chapter titled "In All Your Ways" shows how matters such as eating and washing the dishes can be dedicated to God and perceived as acts of worship. This frame of mind is carried over to obeying the commandments and to sexual relations between men and women. Aryeh Kaplan's book is rich with insights into Jewish spirituality.
