Through his books and lectures, people of every faith and background have found inspiration and new strength for spiritual search and growth.

Kushner served as rabbi at Congregation Beth El in Sudbury, Massachusetts, for almost thirty years; he is currently the Emanu-El scholar at Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco, and an adjunct faculty member at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. He is fascinated by graphic design and computers (designing most of his Jewish Lights books). He enjoys Mozart, hanging around sailboats, and making his granddaughters giggle.

Beautiful introduction to Judaism...  Sep 5, 2000
Kushner writes elegantly of the Jewish faith and introduces children in such a gentle way to their heritage. Lovely book from beginning to end. G-d speaks in this writing.
