Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

It was inevitable that amid the explosion of Kabbalah-related books in the last five years, some would be done devotional-style, aimed to bring the puzzles of Judaism's most mystical text to readers in digestible, bite-sized daily doses. But in Kabbalah Month by Month: A Year of Spiritual Practice and Personal Transformation, Mindy Ribner gives readers a fairly thoughtful and perceptive interpretation. What sets this book apart from most others that explore Kabbalah for the hoi polloi is that it is firmly and stubbornly rooted in Jewish tradition. Some may not agree with Ribner's explanations of some Jewish traditions, or her investigations of astrology, but they will appreciate the fact that she has not sought to divorce Kabbalah from its religious roots. The book is beautifully designed in a square paperback format.

Review

"Mindy Ribner, an internationally acclaimed author, renowned for her dedication and compassionate concern for raising the spiritual level of all she can, has written an erudite and original book on the Jewish calendar with emphasis on enabling the reader to experience personal growth unique to the message and theology associated with each month. I sincerely recommend it."
— Rabbi Mordecai Tendler, Yeshiva University

"A remarkable contribution for helping to make the month-by-month Jewish spiritual journey. It is inspiring, and informing, and transforming. Based on Ribner's genial control of the sources and her experiential know-how, this book is a treasure."
— Rabbi Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi, ALEPH, Alliance for Jewish Renewal; professor, World Wisdom, Naropa University

This book is so rich with actual recommended practices and ideas for jumping off points in living the Jewish cyclical calendar. It is everything in one place. It gives you an outline that you can take as is, or supplement with other texts for a more in depth study. I recommend it for your own practice, a chevruta study or a group.

As a secular Jew, Ribner's book does not talk down to you. She explains Kabbalah and how it can be applied to your daily life. This book was given to me by a special person and now I read it monthly.

Here you have an extraordinary priveledge to share the unique insights and perspective of Miriam Ribner's teachings. She offers her own perspective from her years as a therapist and as a student of Jewish mysticism from one of the 20th century's great teachers. You enter into each month learning more about the cycles of life and holidays - in a way that gives real meaning to our lives. This book is recommended for the novice Kaballah student and for someone who has been studying for years.

Kabbalah Month by Month is one of the most amazing books that I've read. Melinda Ribner combines Kabbalah, astrology, numerology, the Torah portions and psychology. It is well written and accessible. I turn to it again and again to connect with the energies of the month.

I celebrate Rosh Hodesh at each new moon with a group of women. This book has enriched our celebration and added depth to the month ahead.

By Sharon Tucker on March 21, 2014

It has been 11 years since I casually walked by a bookshelf and purchased Mindy Ribner's Kabbalah Month by Month. Little did I know that this book would not only fill me with knowledge, inspiration and understanding, but that it's messages would be timely, even year after year, as it has become my personal companion every year since.

Along with each monthly message are thoughts on which to focus and work, but the "work" is not really work at all. What happens as you meditate on each monthly section is that I have seen the world, my place in it, and my capabilities, in a broader sense. While reading, I smile, I nod my head in amazed understanding that the message is so incredibly timely in my life, and when I close the book for the day, I feel encompassed by the circle of Holiness that exists...encompassed in not only a protection, but a motivation. I am able to see myself more clearly than ever, but beyond myself more clearly than ever.

There are so many spiritual books available; this book is transformational. All you need is an open heart. The messages in this book have been a blessing to me in countless ways, for countless days.
