    1. This is the first authentic guide to the practice of Judaism and Zen and the ways in which they can heal your life. Book shows how practices enrich and illuminate one another, address the primal questions that drive your life and provide keys to your personal struggles. Issues dealt with include loneliness, restlessness, family, marriage, relationships, conflict and ways of healing suffering.


    2. I read a bit of it this morning before work and see some interesting things, but I really thinks it's truly targeted to those who practice both Judaism and Zen "religiously"-- pardon the pun! I am neither, but I will give it further perusal later.


    3. Perfect mix of personal experience and solid research and analysis. Dr. Shoshanna very persuasively argues that Zen Buddhism and Judaism are not only compatible but a combination of the two provide an extremely well-rounded spiritual practice.


    4. An Orthodox Jewish woman describes the development of her interest in Zen practice. Explains the ethics & values common to Buddhism and Judaism, and how the dynamic between the two faiths has deepened her spirituality.



    5. Part memoir, part field guide for the practicing "JewBu", Brenda Shoshanna's Jewish Dharma: A Guide to the Practice of Judaism and Zen recounts snippets of her journey from Orthodox Judaism to Buddhism and back again, ending with an uneasy truce between these two radically different traditions that still share some very deep, common roots. Shoshanna doesn't shy away from the seemingly impossible-to-cross gulfs that threaten to halt any wandering religious pilgrims; she gives her own journey on t [...]


    6. I definitely enjoyed walking through Shoshannah's journey of integrating her roots in the orthodox Jewish community with Zen buddhism. At the same time this is very much a book for people attempting to walk a similar path there is a story which acts as a current throughout the book that makes it enjoyable. Its far from the "spiritual self help for dummies" sort of book. This book was also well written it terms of her ability to lay out the connectivities and parallels she sees between Judaism an [...]


    7. Very refreshing; inspiring. I will come back to this book and find new insights- as time moves forward my perspective will mature with this text.
