Joel Covitz

Thousands of years before Freud and Jung, the role of dream interpreter was an established profession among the Jewish nation who regarded these "Visions of the Night" as an important source of divine guidance for the conduct of daily life. In this particular book, Joel Covitz examines the Jewish literature for insights into the nature of dreams that can illuminate a secular approach to dreamwork and psychotherapy. Citing the Bible, the Talmud and Midrash, Jewish legends and the writings of medieval Kabbalists, he shows that the Jews had positive methods for studying dreams as a tool of psychological transformation and healing. With its emphasis on helping dreamers to find practical solutions to their problems, the Jewish art of dream interpretation is especially relevant to the needs of contemporary men and women. At the same time, the Jewish view stresses the importance of the professional interpreter, whose challenge is to identify for the dreamer the guiding message of the dream. Included in this book is the author's translation of an important medieval text appearing in English for the first time "The Interpretation of Dreams" (1515), by Solomon Almoli.
