New book on Jewish and Muslim mysticism

Hey JAM,
Check out this new
book, which provides an interesting examination of Jewish and Muslim mystical traditions. This book examines the close ties between Kabal and Sufiism, and through an examination of the ties between our religions, we can begin to conceive of the peaceful relations Jews and Muslims have enjoyed over time, and will hopefully enjoy everywhere in the near future.

As Mr. Block wrote to me recently, "By popularizing this little-known tale of mutual respect and spiritual love, a narrative of peace – so unusual in these difficult times in the Middle East – can begin to resonate between these children of Abraham."
