- ABRAHAM ISAAC HAKOHEN KOOK WAS THE FIRST ASHKENAZIC CHIEF RABBI
OF ERETS ISRAEL. OROT IS HIS SEMINAL WORK OF THOUGHT, A POETIC VISION
OF GRANDEUR OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL REBORN IN ITS ANCIENT LAND.
- A better appreciation of the "Holy Revolution" that began with the controversy caused by the publication of Orer, can serve as a background to a deep comprehension of the different movements within the Jewish world of our day.
Chief Rabbi of Haifa
- Bezalel Naor's translation of Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook's Orot is an authoritative English version, accompanied by learned and illuminating notes. This book opens the thought of one of the most important Jewish mystics of the twentieth century to the larger audience.
Max Cooper Professor of Jewish Thought, Hebrew University
- Bezalel Naor has performed an outstanding service to Jewish hearts and minds with this superb English translation of Rav Kook's Orot. These essays are essential reading for the contemporary Jew. Here is all the poetry and passion, love and lyricism of Judaism's greatest modern mystic, a man whose vision of Judaism and humanity is as generous as it is wise. An inspirational work.
Former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom
- Rabbi Naor has done a masterful job in bringing Rabbi Kook's thoughts and philosophy to the English-speaking public. Rabbi Naor's introduction, notes and comments are themselves works of genius. Anyone wishing to understand the complexities of the current Jewish scene with its crosscurrents and contradictions, must read this book to gain perspective and understanding.
Mara de-Atra, Beit Knesset Hanassi, Rebavia, Jerusalem
- The language barrier which made Rav Kook's work practically inaccessible is now overcome. By "rescuing" this work, Rabbi Naor connects us with one of the greatest souls our nation begot - Rav Kook.
