A startling new genre of Jewish book!
The Kabbalah of Relation
Kabbalah and Hasidism juxtaposed to the surrealist art of Marc Chagall.
Working with the model of the medieval bestiary, noted thinker Bezalel Naor explores the depths of human relation by way of a tour de force of Talmudic, Medieval Philosophic, Kabbalistic and Hasidic literature.
The Kabbalah of Relation juxtaposes images of surrealist painter Marc Chagall to ancient kabbalistic texts. Thereby, the texts and images bounce off one another. The images illuminate the texts (quite traditional for medieval manuscripts) and vice versa: the texts illuminate the images! So simultaneously, one has an artistic commentary to the Kabbalah, and a kabbalistic commentary to Chagall’s Surrealist Art.
