One of the Nicest Letters I Have Ever Received

by Reb Gutman Locks @ Mystical Paths

Hello Rabbi,

     I was wondering if you have all your books and CD's in stock, I live in Canada and would like to order them.

     I'd like to add that I'm not Jewish, (not that it matters) but I find great joy and common sense in your teachings! I would like somehow or other to reach across our cultures and if only in my heart, see you as a friend and teacher. I'm 66 yrs old, I live in Vancouver B.C. Canada and have struggled with faith and making sense of religion for years.

    I'm cult’ed out, finished with India, the Roman Catholic Church, the 'new-age' mysticism etc etc..... It was your comment to that preacher.. "who did Je-sus pray to?" It was like a slap in the face, it woke me up!

    I'd love to hear from you, and if I never get to meet you let me thank you for your work and your concern for the rest of us.

     I hope I haven't come across as some kook...I’m not!

     I hope this finds you well and in joy.

Shalom, Gary

Gutman’s answer:

Shalom Gary,

        You do not sound like a kook, not at all. You sound like one of us who has spent his life searching, and only found disappointment. I bet you are going to make it, though. Not many people are really searching for the truth today, and instead are satisfied with what they have been doing, even though it has never paid off.

     My books and music are available from

     I recommend that you learn the Seven Commandments of Noah, and follow those simple commandments. This will give you a holy life in this world, and a share in the World to Come. You can search out such sites as

   Let me know if you have any questions.

Be well,
Your friend,
