Author, 'The Sabbath Soul: Mystical Reflections on the Transformative Power of Holy Time'
Dr. Eitan Fishbane is a scholar and teacher of Jewish mysticism. He serves as Assistant Professor of Jewish Thought at The Jewish Theological Seminary, and his writing is devoted both to subjects of historical scholarship and contemporary theology.
Fishbane is the author or editor of five books, including the highly acclaimed "As Light Before Dawn: The Inner World of a Medieval Kabbalist" (Stanford University Press), a study of mystical experience and contemplative practice. Leading scholars have called the book “a dazzling, erudite analysis” and “a superb work of scholarship”; “a major contribution both to the study of Jewish mysticism and to the wider world of comparative mystical research.”
