When Rabbi Akiva Tatz received a letter from Chicago Jew by the name of David Gottlieb asking: "Do i commit myself fully to Judaism and abandon Zen altogether - the Zen that helped me to awaken spiritually for the first time in my adult life?" he replied immediately. And when David asked: "Where can I find the vibrancy, the wisdom and the source of spiritual connection which, for me, Judaism has never held?" he kept writing. Over the next two years their correspondence became an exploration of many Judaism's deepest ideas. This book is a record of that correspondence. David's penetrating questions evoke depths of Torah wisdom that are unknown to most modern Jews.
