Gerim in Chassidic Thought

Former blogger and friend, Dov ben Avraham aka A Simple Jew, dropped out of blogging a few years ago to pursue a Torah project.  After years of inspiring people online, he’s spent the last several years creating a sefer on an interesting topic that we can all find inspiring…

Bnei Avraham Ahuvecha: Gerim in Chassidic Thought

From Dov ben Avraham:  I am pleased to announce the release of a book that will enthusiastically be sought after by Jews who were not born Jewish, and those on the path to becoming Jewish.

This book - full of teachings from Breslov literature - has received glowing approbations from Rabbi Yitzchok Meir Morgenstern, Rabbi Lazer Brody, the Sudilkover Rebbe, the Bostoner Rebbe, the Hornsteipler Rebbe, and Rabbi Dovid Meisels.

Unlike numerous books already published in English on conversion to Judaism, this book is not a personal narrative, how-to manual, digest of relevant laws, or academic historical overview.  This book presents the story behind the story — the mystical teachings found within Chassidic literature that illuminate the hidden inner world of the ger. 

Until now, these teachings were scattered in an unorganized manner throughout countless volumes and inaccessible to those unfamiliar with the Hebrew language. With this book, Bnei Avraham Ahuvecha: Gerim in Chassidic Thought, relevant Chassidic teachings are collected, translated from Hebrew into English, organized topically, and further elucidated when needed. Interspersed with these translated teachings, stories- both old and new - are included to help bring them to life. In addition, this book includes supplementary essays written by Breslev Research Institute’s Rabbi Chaim Kramer, Rabbi Ozer Bergman, and Rabbi Dovid Sears.

Bnei Avraham Ahuvecha: Gerim in Chassidic Thought is now available for purchase online on Amazon.com here.

….Given his inspiring blogging past, we’re certain his sefer is worth checking out.
