Rabbi DAVID AARON, the son of a Holocaust survivor, has struggled since early youth to understand the world's potential for hatred and paradoxical yearning for meaning, love, and creativity. His own spiritual journey led him to Israel, where he studied Torah and Jewish mysticism under the tutelage of the great masters. He received his rabbinical ordination in 1979 from the Israel Torah Research Institute (ITRI). A popular lecturer in North America and a frequent guest on radio and TV, he is the founder and dean of Isralight (www.isralight.org), an international organization with centers and programs throughout North America and in Israel. Rabbi Aaron lives in Jerusalem with his wife, Chana, and their seven children. David Aaron's other books include ENDLESS LIGHT: THE ANCIENT PATH OF THE KABBALAH TO LOVE, SPIRITUAL GROWTH, and PERSONAL POWER AND SEEING GOD: TEN LIFE-CHANGING LESSONS OF THE KABBALAH.
