Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This study of Hasidic mysticism and its kabbalistic roots provides and excellent introduction to Hasidism. Methodical in its approach, it discusses the theology, history, and major figures of Hasidism as well as its complex links to kabbalah, Shabbateanism, and post-Shabbatean texts. As such it opens a new window on the religious experience while also making a valuable contribution to the study of the eighteenth century as a key period in the formation of modern Jewry.

"The Wisdom of the Zohar: An Anthology of Texts" is a fantasitic three volume set that provides the modern reader with the ability to understand significant portions of this major mystical work. Hebrew University Professor of Jewish Mysticism Isaiah Tishby provides an extensive and brilliant introduction that situates the Zohar in its historical and theological context. David Goldstein, Curator of Hebrew Books at the British Museum, smoothly translated from the Hebrew into English.
