Elad Nehorai — the writer of the popular blog Pop Chassid and a contributor to the Forward, Haaretz and other Jewish media outlets — was drawn to spirituality from a young age.

Growing up in a secular Jewish home, the outspoken writer and activist didn’t have much experience with the Jewish religion as a child, and certainly not with the faith’s mystical side, he explained to a crowd gathered in the home of Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz, president and dean of Valley Beit Midrash, last Tuesday. In fact, the first “religious” or philosophical text Nehorai connected with was the Tao Te Ching; he didn’t even know his own religion had a rich tradition of deep mysticism.
