About Torah As a Guide to Enlightenment

"For years, as a Jewish woman, I have been seeking the doorway to Enlightenment through Judaism. And here, Torah As a Guide to Enlightenment has brought the life and soul back, and dramatically touched my essence. Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment is a God-inspired door opener."

- Trudy Green, manager of Aerosmith and Michael Jackson

"Jews and Torah have a symbiotic relationship: the life of one depends on the life of the other. For far too long Torah has been on life support because the Jews have been on life support. Rabbi Gabriel Cousens is about to revive the latter by resuscitating the former. His Torah As a Guide to Enlightenment reveals a level of Torah wisdom that few contemporary Jews know exits, and when they do, there is hope that they will achieve the very enlightenment Rabbi Cousens and Torah promise them."

- Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of Tanya, the Masterpiece of Hasidic Wisdom

Inspired by intense studies, meditation, and a variety of teachings from the great Torah sages, best-selling author Gabriel Cousens, MD, presents the fifty-two parashas of the Torah as a practical path to liberation. His interpretation, which focuses on enlightenment, what he feels is the original intention of the Torah, provides a multidimensional analysis and a perspective that is often missing from conventional teachings. Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment conveys liberation understandings not only to those with Jewish backgrounds, but also to anyone seeking to reconnect with their spiritual roots.
