The Tremble of Love with Ani Tuzman
Ani Tuzman is a novelist, an award-winning poet, and a writing mentor. She is the author of The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov, her newly-released literary, historical novel.
The Eastern European mystic rabbi known as the Baal Shem Tov founded the Hasidic tradition within Judaism. A Kabbalist, he taught that divine sparks are hidden everywhere and it is one’s sacred duty to find and free the energy in these sparks whose essence is love.
It is a delicious book that I could not put down.
Ani Tuzman is a novelist, an award-winning poet, and a writing mentor.
Ani grew up on a back-road chicken farm, the daughter of Holocaust survivors. At the age of eight, she began writing to an invisible companion, filling page after page with her questions about a world darkened by the shadow of the Holocaust. But there was also the ecstasy of rain, the dance of the willow in the wind, the stars illumining the night sky. Writing about it all—in the silent, unconditional embrace of nature—became Ani’s path to the light.
Ani’s deep appreciation for the gifts of writing, coupled with her desire to nurture the spirits and creativity of children, led her to found the Dance of the Letters, where for over 30 years she has provided welcoming and joyous spaces for people of all ages to find and free the voices of their hearts through writing.
Being awakened to the practice of meditation proved the perfect complement to writing, revealing a direct path to the inner wellsprings of love and creativity.
Along the way, Tuzman became captivated by legends of an eighteenth-century Eastern European mystic rabbi known as the Baal Shem Tov. A Kabbalist, he taught that divine sparks are hidden everywhere and it is one’s sacred duty to find and free the energy in these sparks whose essence is love. When Ani turned fifty, she experienced an inner call to write about this spiritual master. Her recent literary, historical novel The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov, is the response to that call.
The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov, a work of transformative fiction, is a testament to the inextinguishable fire of love. Although people and their institutions may be devastated, as was the case with Eastern European Jewry and with other cultures throughout history, the human capacity to love and to heal cannot be defeated.
Ani lives in New England, where in addition to working on her next novel, she savors long walks in the changing seasons, meditation, and inspiring others to find and free their voices.
