I know you. I was written nearly 2,500 years ago just for you. I am that prayer you have heard sung in synagogue since your youth. They call me Adon Olam. I was written to light a path for our people through every kind of darkness. Some of the greatest men in history imbued my few short stanzas with wisdom beyond space and time. No matter where you have come from and no matter what you have gone through, my words are instilled with a secret message especially for you.

You feel that there is more to Judaism, much more than you presently understand. You are yearning to connect with a bigger picture, but you don’t have any idea how to find it. Sometimes you don’t even know what questions to ask. I know your feelings and I know your questions.

The Torah tells us that the purpose of Creation is to listen as Hashem beckons us to pull away the clouds that hide Him. Join me on a journey that will banish your clouds of confusion and close all of the breaches between you and your Creator. Do you dare?

I am waiting for you. I will reveal my secrets to you, but let’s take the scenic route, where I will introduce you to a few other searching souls much like yourself. As we will relive their personal adventures, you will receive the answers to both your asked and as yet unasked questions. You, like these young men, will unlock the wisdom of the ancient sages, and you will become a possessor of answers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow! Mind blowing from the beginning! 25. August 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased a paperback of this book directly from the author. I was so impressed by it that I have since purchased the kindle edition from Amazon. In addition, I plan to buy several copies for family members. Rabbi Weiss is able to take deep Torah principles and present them in a way easy to understand. If you want to know more about why you are here on this earth, your relationship with the creator, how you are to live, and much more, this book will teach you using one of the most important prayers/statements from Jewish History, Adon Olam. I have since listened to Adon Olam on youtube videos almost everyday so I can sing it myself and internalize even more its message. This will be a book I refer to often as my understanding continues to grow.

An important book for the searching soul wishing to connect to G-D. Discover the the profound meaning behind the ancient Jewish prayer of Adon Olam. This book delivers in fantastic form, a novel based on real life experience of Rabbi Zalman Weiss in his work with those returning to Judaism and those converting to Judaism. It is an easy read designed to answer the fundamental questions about G-D and His connection with mankind. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a great book both for learned Jewish and beginners 5. November 2014

This is such a different type of book - it's a "sefer" (a Jewish book) and a novel wrapped in one. Rabbi Weiss' writing style is captivating, and "Adon Olam: A Search for Meaning" connects the reader back to Hashem and reminds us of a what the "big picture" is. This is a great book both for learned Jewish and beginners, I would recommend it to yeshivas, libraries, seminaries, and for individuals!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A scholarly work based in a novel 5. Dezember 2014
Von Steven - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
First a disclaimer: Rabbi Weiss is a long time friend and study partner. That being said this is a wonderful book. As others noted this is a commentary on Adon Olam embedded in a novel. Here are some thoughts(in no particular order):

-While the book is very readable and accessible, the ideas discussed are deep. I had to reread sections to fully grasp them.

-This book is accessible to beginners and the learned. However, the Torah discussed is deeper then that found at some basic Jewish websites and beginner programs. It is deeper, richer and not sugar-coated. Prepare to be challenged.

-The sefer is also a good intro to Jewish Theology and the thoughts of Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto and other classic thinkers.

In short, this sefer is excellent on many levels. It is informative as well as entertaining. I believe this book could benefit Jews at any level of observance and even non-Jews that want to delve deeper into Jewish thought.

Good job Zalman!

4.0 von 5 Sternen There is way more to Adon Olam than you might have ever guessed. 10. Februar 2015
Von rivkah30 - Veröffentlicht auf

If you’ve been to any synagogue anywhere in the world, you’re probably familiar with at least one tune for Adon Olam, a brief Jewish song that has been sung at the end of nearly every Shabbat service around the world for at least the past 700 years. There are dozens of tunes for Adon Olam and, in many synagogues in North America, it’s most often led by young children.

So you’ll forgive me if I didn’t understand, at first, the deeper meaning of the five lines of Adon Olam (six in the Sefardic tradition). Actually, it never occurred to me that Adon Olam even had any particularly deep meaning. After all, the tune with which I am most familiar is a happy, clappy tune, not even remotely hinting at the depth of the text. Once I actually took the time to read the translation of the words in English, I was astonished. I realized there was a whole lot more going on with this little tune.

Rabbi Zalman Weiss, in his book Adon Olam: A Search for Meaning, wants to unpack the words of Adon Olam for today’s Jews. Rather than write an intellectual essay for a limited audience, he wrote a novel, intended for a much broader Jewish audience.

The novel’s main character, Yehudah Stark, is a teacher in a yeshiva in Jerusalem. Avi is an advanced student and Yehudah’s teaching assistant. Ovadiah Yashar, an 18 year-old non-religious American Jew, comes to the yeshiva after the murder of his father. His father’s last words were, “Ovadiah, never forget…Adon…Olam.” Throughout the book, Yehudah and Avi teach Ovadiah and three other yeshiva students the deeper meaning of the words of Adon Olam.

Adon Olam is commonly attributed to the 11th century Spanish poet and philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol. However, Rabbi Weiss asserts that it was actually written by the members of the Great Assembly 2500 years ago in response to a generation that was being pulled more deeply into idol worship. Nevertheless, according to Weiss, “The holy words of Adon Olam were given to us in an intensely concentrated and precise form. They were written in order to guide the Jewish people toward the Creator every day, no matter when, no matter what, no matter where, and no matter what would happen to them throughout the ages.”

This book was written to reveal the many layers of Adon Olam to its readers through the vehicle of the four yeshiva students and their teachers. It isn’t always easy reading. Some of the concepts packed into the text of Adon Olam are complex and the explanations offered by Weiss are often mystical. Nevertheless, if you can stay with the flow of the narrative, you’ll surely have a totally different level of appreciation for what is arguably the most well-known liturgical song in all of Judaism.
