Rav Itzchak Marmorstein performing Rav Kook’s Mystical Poetry

Rav Itzchak Marmorstein gives a voice to Rav. Kook’s poetry through music and words. An amazing group of musicians provide the musical backdrop for Marmorstein’s wonderfully heart filled love of Rav Kook and his mystical secrets on life.

Rabbi Avraam Izchak HaCohen Kook (1865-1935) was one of the most influential and inspirational religious Jewish thinkers of the 20th century. Kook was a man who was humanistic in his philosophy. He preached for vegetarianism and was interested in the arts (he thought that Rembrandt was a tzadik, a righteous man), though his philosophy was deeply religious. He believed that the re-establishment of a Jewish state in the land of Israel had deep theological significance, a heavenly plan to bring about the messianic era.
