I invite you to explore the mysteries of reincarnation and hope that you will find it as fascinating and meaningful as I do. Reincarnation is not only an interesting issue to explore for the information itself, but it can have a deep impact on each of our lives.

Rav DovBer Pinson presents his readers with a rich and engaging study of life's most perplexing question: What happens after I die?
To many people, even those who have received a formal Jewish education, reincarnation is not a part of traditional Jewish thought. It seems now that the facts of the matter contradict this conclusion. As Rav Pinson points out, the great masters of Jewish mysticism were firm believers in reincarnation, and this is clearly reflected in their teachings. The author writes, "The idea of reincarnation is replete with misconceptions, beginning with the very source of the notion, which so many mistakenly believe to be a foreign, un-Jewish idea. Reincarnation is, in fact, deeply rooted in Jewish thought, from the ancient kabbalists to modern Hasidic philosophy. Reincarnation was, and continues to be, a fundamental tenet of Judaism."
Rav Pinson looks carefully at questions such as: What is reincarnation? Why does it exist and how des it affect our lives? Do individuals have true "soul mates?" Is it possible to recall details from past lives? Do people reincarnate into animals? What impact can belief in reincarnation have on an individual?
"Reincarnation and Judaism: The Journey of the Soul" is an important, groundbreaking book that finally offers us a clear understanding of a profound yet often misunderstood concept.
