Rabbi Yakov Nagen speaks with Eve Harow about his new book “Be, Become, Bless: Jewish Spirituality between East and West” and the needed balance between “doing’ and “being”. His unique synthesis of wisdom from Jewish sources, Western philosophy, Eastern spirituality and even music and modern literature is meant to lead us to find greater meaning in life. How do we connect to God in the aftermath of tragedy? How do we make sense of a world that’s “the best of times and the worst of times”? Rabbi Nagen is also a noted leader in interfaith dialogue and a beacon of hope for better societies and eventually, perhaps, a healed world.
