Bachya Ibn Pakudah's The Duties of the Heart "There are many things we'd need to know if we're ever to achieve the sort of spiritual excellence that the Jewish Tradition asks of us. But perhaps the most important of them would be the need to know our own hearts-which is to say, to know who we are, what we feel, what we consider important, what our dreams are, and what realizations we've come to."
-From Author's Prologue

This work is the first in a series of works in the Spiritual Excellence series that has run for a number of years with great success on Project Genesis' very popular website, . To date the series has featured works based on a number of classical Jewish ethical and spiritual texts, including the one this book is based on, Bachya Ibn Pakudah's The Duties of the Heart, as well Rabbeinu Yonah's The Gates of Repentance, R' Moshe Maimonides' The Eight Chapters, and R' Moshe Chaim Luzzatto's The Path of the Just.

We're honored to offer this work in book form now, and look forward to doing the same with those other works and others. We're especially pleased, though, to offer this one first; not only because it was the premier effort in the series, but also because The Duties of the Heart itself has always touched the core so deeply and been a central work of personal inspiration.
