Publisher Comments:

“This sensitive commentary and translation of the classic text of Kabbalah is of foundational importance for an understanding of “Jewish mysticism.”—Jewish Book World

“While translation may be an art, it can also be genuine scholarship of the highest order. . . . Restoring the Zohar to our comprehension, these volumes are a monumental contribution to the history of Jewish thought.”

—Koret Jewish Book Award,

KIER8, November 11, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
In "Zohar Pritzker Edition Volume 2" Graduate Theological Union [Berkeley. CA] Professor of Jewish Spirituality Daniel C. Matt coninues his masterful translation of this Aramaic classic of Kabbalah through Genesis 32:3. Matt's copious commentary and notes based on extensive research of both published and manuscript Jewish scholarship makes this work essential even for scholars who can read Aramaic. This fine edition is a feather in Stanford University Press' cap.
