Overview

One God, Many Worlds: Teachings of a Renewed Hasidism: A Festschrift in Honor of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, z?l by Netanel Miles-Yepez

In 2004, as a private gift for Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's 80th birthday, a number of his students and colleagues were invited to contribute to a festschrift or commemorative volume in his honor. To make the volume truly unique, each contributor was asked to update or give a new presentation to teachings by Reb Zalman's own rebbes which he had himself translated into English, or to stories that he had told of them. These included teachings and stories of Rabbi Yosef Yitzhak Schneersohn of Lubavitch (1880-1950), Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson of Lubavitch (1902-1994), and Rabbi Shlomo Halberstam of Bobov (1908-2000). The idea was to see how these same teachings might be presented today, according to the paradigm-shifted understanding of Reb Zalman's own colleagues, close collaborators, and students.

In 2014, this unique collection of Hasidic teachings was updated and supplemented to honor Reb Zalman on his 90th birthday. Now, after his passing, it is being being published in book form for the first time. The updated collection contains contributions from some of today's most important artists and spiritual teachers, including: Bahir Davis, Tirzah Firestone, Emanuel Goldman, Lynn Gottlieb, Arthur Green, Michael L. Kagan, Ruth Gan Kagan, Laura Duhan Kaplan, Miles Krassen, Shaul Magid, Matisyahu, Netanel Miles-Yépez, Thomas Atum O'Kane, Nehemia Polen, Carol Rose, Neal Rose, Shalvi Schachter Waldman, and Rami Shapiro.
