Publisher's Summary

As a carpenter employs tools to build a home, so G-d utilized the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, the alef-beis, to form heaven and earth.

These letters are the metaphorical wood, stone and nails, corner posts and crossbeams of our earthly and spiritual existence.

In Letters of Light, Rabbi Aaron L. Raskin explores the essence of these holy letters, illustrating how they continue to be a source of creation, reflection, prayer, and inspiration in our everyday lives.

Each letter is examined in terms of its design, gematria (numerical value), and Hebrew meaning. Rabbi Raskin's insights are guided by the rich foundations of Chasidic philosophy, particularly by the illuminations of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe.

The result is a unique and insightful exposition of how the 22 letters of the alef-beis can provide wisdom and guidance for every aspect of our lives.

Okay but..

The description of the aleph bet was great and the details concerning the letters was amazing, but the part that took away was the constant rhetoric of Jewish source material instead of Torah. To me it would have been better to cite scripture where the letters are used for context instead of citing rabbis and their mysticism.
