Short Desription

Inspirations of Israel is a poetry collection that considers the peoplehood of the Jews, from their origin as Hebrew clans and their development as wandering Israelites, to their modern incarnation as a community split along religious and geographic lines. It spans the vast range of religion, politics, history, landscape, culture, and love, as seen through the eyes of a Jew born in the Diaspora who must examine the contemporary people and State of Israel in light of an Orthodox religious upbringing. What emerges from these artistic reflections is a love for the land, its rolling hills and winding valleys, its modern marvels and ancient ruins, its lengthy history and varying topography. Also apparent is an abiding appreciation for the Jewish People whose extensive story is replete with events of momentous significance for all humanity. Furthermore, it treats with seriousness the relatively recent schisms between religious and secular, conservative and liberal, East and West. Inherent in these words of fervor are powerful images of the Holy Temple, the Holy City of Jerusalem, the sanctity of the Sabbath, and the weighty destiny of a society consecrated to morality and ethics. Rites and rituals are described in terms of love and devotion, with God as groom and Israel as bride. Verses cry out for salvation and peace, unity among brethren, and for a greater understanding of Jewish culture and experience. Shortcomings and hypocrisies are neither denied nor overlooked-the author tackles these controversies head-on and with genuine thoughtfulness. Through the lens of Judaism and the Land of Israel, then, these odes amount to an exploration of man''s relationship with nature, with other human beings, with his place in the global mosaic, and with a higher power. Respectful of historical episodes and the chronological progression of civilization through the often turbulent ages, the author establishes loving-kindness as the common denominator uniting disparate subjects.
