My name is Ira Zukerman.
I was raised in what I imagine to be a typical American household in the 50s (I am 60 now in 2016), not particularly religiously Jewish, but attending the neighborhood shul, which happened to be Orthodox. Growing up in the 70’s, I was exposed to a number of Eastern traditions, and did find in about 1973 a special interest in the tradition of buddhism that has come to be known as Shambhala. Later, marrying outside of both Jewish and buddhist traditions, seeking to find a religious home for a future family, we re-adopted Judaism as a target. In the process, while in the waiting room of a Reform synagogue while my son was in religious school, the book that the body of this website is intended to reveal more about, by Rosenberg (see home page), did come to my awareness. The rest, as they say, is history.
