Description

Product Description

Sefer ha-Zohar (The Book of Radiance) has amazed readers ever since it emerged in Spain over seven hundred years ago. Written in a lyrical Aramaic, the Zohar, a masterpiece of Kabbalah, features mystical interpretation of the Torah, from Genesis to Deuteronomy.

The tenth volume of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition presents Midrash ha-Ne''lam on the Torah, the earliest texts of the Zoharic corpus and first fruits of the Zoharic world. In contrast to the main body of the Zohar, Midrash ha-Ne''lam is composed in both Aramaic and Hebrew; its style combines philosophical allegory and kabbalistic midrash.

Particularly noteworthy is the extended allegorical interpretation of the patriarchal narratives. They are read as an account of the descent of the soul, its adventures on earth, and its wandering journey after death, finally culminating in its reunion with the perfected body following resurrection. Quintessential Zoharic motifs such as "walking on the way" and the "nocturnal delight in the Garden of Eden" make their first appearances here. The volume also includes many short narratives featuring the "Masters of Mishnah," a group of sages possessing esoteric knowledge of the soul and the cosmos, the forerunner of the Zoharic fellowship.

The Pritzker edition has an excellent English translation and great notes enabling the ordinary reader to understand the meaning of this otherwise mysterious text. Every new volume is well-bound and anyone interested in Kabbalah will rejoice to own it. I have consulted the various volumes many times and eagerly acquired each volume as it came out. I recommend it highly and of course my teachers also recommended it to me to start with.

Of course it would take twice as many volumes to include the original Aramaic, but I would have been glad to buy all the volumes anyway. I have often wished I had the original text on the facing page.

I''m going to comment on the series of Zohar: Pritzker Editions instead of just on book. This series is a wonderful translation and composition of all of the remaining copies of the Zohar. The footnotes really help in understanding what the (at times) cryptic text is saying. I would recommend this series to anyone interested in reading the Zohar.

I never cease to be amazed at the quality of the scholarship, the deep ''explainings'', the copious notes, the clarity of the thoughts as explained in translation. Nathan Wolski, in no way disappoints. This is an amazing series of translations, and a sheer joy to sit, ponder and to read. I am so glad Daniel Matt, Nathan Wolski and the others who contributed to this series have the dedication they do - it shows. This collection has finally gotten a well deserved make-over. Please if you love good scholarship and have an urge to dig into something extremely deep, get this series from vol. 1 on... You won''t want your Kabbalah Studies bookshelf to be with out it! imho.

oyful academia. I think that phrase best describes Daniel Matt''s translation – with commentary – of the Zohar. PLUS no red string needed to reap the benefits of this incredible series.

The author is much like a skilled chef: he not only understands what ingredients are in the product...in addition to where each ingredient has been grown...he also understands how they interplay with each other, how to mix them and how the final product will taste even before cooking it. Daniel Matt takes us into the garden that is the Zohar and acts as tour guide, storyteller and head chef.

A word of caution however: this is a meal of esoteric thought. Some of the flavors you will be exposed to may seem a bit too scary taste or unfathomable. Like any feast of exotic food, you will need to commit yourself to the whole meal to gain perspective and appreciation for each course. The payoff will be a deliciously deep & rational understanding of the Zohar specifically and the Jewish mystical experience as whole.

This is an important and valuable addition to anyone''s library.
