Why, when I have everything, do I feel as if I have nothing? For Roy Neuberger life was an inexplicable nightmare. Terrified of the black forces that seemed to engulf him, he was on a rapidly whirling downward spiral. Is there a door that leads to truth? Is there a door that leads to happiness?
At 2:00 a.m., Monday, January 10, 1966, then a twenty-three-year-old graduate student at the University of Michigan, Roy awoke with a start. His marriage was disintegrating; his grades were plummeting. He couldn't breathe; he had lost control. What else was there besides death?
It was then that Roy began to think the unthinkable: Perhaps there is a reality beyond man's understanding…. Perhaps Roy Neuberger is not the center of the universe. Thus began a desperate search for truth that would lead him to immersion in Hinduism, Buddhism, Protestantism, and Catholicism. The answer did not come until eight years later, when he unexpectedly heard a message that would shake him to the core and give him the courage to reclaim his long-buried Jewish soul.
Written with unbridled passion, uncommon humility, and disarming candor, From Central Park to Sinai takes us on a tumultuous emotional journey from an empty secular life to a world of spiritual richness, guided by the belief that there is a very real entity Who created the world and whose rules we are obliged to follow.
Roy Neuberger's remarkable transformation from a Central Park rich kid to a deeply religious Jew mesmerizes, fascinates, inspires, and ultimately comforts us with the knowledge that if we dare to look within, we, too, can find the path to Sinai.
Foreword by Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs.
