Can we connect to God through love? Can we connect to love through God?

Those are the questions that underlie Rabbi Shefa Gold's new book, In the Fever of love: An Illumination of the Song of Songs.

Rabbi Gold is a leader of the Jewish Renewal movement and composer of six albums of Jewish liturgical music. Her new book is an intimate erotic elaboration of the Song of Songs in which she speaks directly and passionately to God, The Beloved.

The May 16th event at the Ratner Museum is the official publication party for In the Fever of Love. In the Fever of Love is illustrated with artist Phillip Ratner's drawings which are on display at the museum.

The event will feature chant and song from the Song of Songs and readings from her book.
