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.

You enter into each month learning more about the cycles of life and holidays - in a way that gives real meaning to our lives.

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.

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.

Melinda Ribner's teachings in all of her books have profoundly guided me and continue to guide me in keeping connected and conscious spiritually and in all dimensions of life--emotional, physical etc. Kabballah Month by Month in particular is always at my bedside table or in my back pack with me on the go to learn and share with friends about the energies and guidelines for every Jewish month of the year. This book is my "go-to" when I am looking for inspiration or to reconnect with the current season or holiday. When I gather with friends I always come prepared with a thought, concept or story from Ribner's spiritually rich wellspring of teachings. I am so thankful for her books and the strength and insight they deliver, I highly recommend all to partake in her beautiful works.

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.

Deep spiritual truths are the same in all true religions. Melinda Ribner has discovered the mystical teachings of this great tradition and brought to her readers simple to understand concepts and a road map that anyone can use for self-discovery, self-healing and self-transformation. Having come from another spiritual tradition I was still readily able to recognize the truths of which she speaks and appreciate her common sense style that should help many to start or deepen a meditative spiritual practice.
