Why does the Book of Vayikra seem to drop the narrative flow of the Torah? What do the Holidays teach us about our relationship to this physical world with its properties of time, space, and matter? What role does speech play in the realization of the Divine image of the human being? In this third volume of his critically acclaimed Echoes of Eden series, Rabbi Kahn combines the mystical explorations of kabbalah and chassidism with a highly intellectual and broad-minded approach to Torah study, as he applies psychology, literature and Jewish history to infuse fresh meaning into some of the most difficult narratives of the Biblical text.
