Today, people are searching. They search for identity, faith, direction, stability. The need for self-fulfillment and self-expression is the cry. Too often, these are confused with self-indulgence and self-gratification. Jewish mysticism addresses "self." Knowledge of self is a means to knowledge of the Creator and of the created universe. To understand Jewish mysticism is to know one's self. Transcendence, immanence, contemplation, meditation and others terms which too many connote new ideas and disciplines outside Judaism, have at all times been standard terms and concepts in the esoteric doctrine. What is Jewish mysticism? How does it differ from other forms of mysticism? These and many other questions were answered by a team of scholars of international repute, men of learning and faith, at the International Symposium on Jewish Mysticism held in London, England. "To Touch the Divine" reproduces some of the papers delivered at the Symposium, which demonstrated that Jewish mysticism is not an academic exercise but an integral component of the Jewish experience.
