Rabbi Mitchell Chefitz, of South Florida has written the first two in a series of fictional novels which also serve as an introduction to Kabbalah. The Seventh Telling, and The Thirty Third Hour are about real modern Jews studying Kabblah and relating it to their lives in a meaningful way that is empowering and exciting (as opposed to, you know, cultish). The newly appointed Rabbi of Temple Israel of Greater Miami, I had the privilege of meeting Rabbi Chefitz this week at the National Havurah Committee‘s annual summer institute.

Ahoy, organized anarchy!
