The Temple Beth Zion in Brookline hosts a reading with ANI TUZMAN, author of The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov. The reading will be followed by discussion and book signing.
The Tremble of Love is an historical novel inspired by the legendary healer and spiritual master, Rabbi Yisroel ben Eliezar, who became known as the Baal Shem Tov, the Master of the Good Name. Set in the richly textured Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth of the 1700s, this exquisite reimagining of one of history’s most revered and revolutionary mystics transports readers back in time to experience the true meaning of power and the timeless grace of love.
THIS EVENT IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
“The message of the Baal Shem Tov―ecstatic seeker, compassionate healer, mediator, mystical teacher, and peacemaker―is as needed today as it was in his lifetime: our capacity to love and care for the other is the path to lasting peace and harmony.”
~Dr. Paula Green, Founder and Senior Advisor, Karuna Center for Peacebuilding
“The Tremble of Love is a book that nourishes the spirit, a book for people of all faiths―as well as for those who have lost faith.”
~Father Gilbert Aranha, Executive Secretary for the Bishops’ Conference for Ecumenism and founder of JPK House of Love (Prema Nilaya), Mysore, India
