Summary
  • "The wisdom of Kabbalah attracts people of many faiths and backgrounds. Too often, though, writings on Jewish mysticism are impenetrable to the novice, overly simplified for the advanced student, or misrepresentative of traditional Kabbalistic practice. The Kabbalah Handbook is the first comprehensive, single-volume guide to provide a reliable reference for Kabbalah students at every level of learning."
  • "It features more than five hundred key terms and concepts with straightforward, easy-to-read definitions and thorough, well-researched expositions; Hebrew, English, and Hebrew transliteration for each item; the language of origin for each term; pronunciation guides; nondiscriminatory, gender-neutral language; important historical information; extensive cross-referencing that enables readers to find all terms, whether they are looking up a word in English or transliterated Hebrew; overviews of differing opinions within Kabbalistic philosophy; thirty-two tables and charts that break down and organize complex topics into manageable, easy-to-understand forms; twenty-eight original and innovative illustrations; and appendices covering material such as the 613 Mitzvot (biblical commandments), a historical time line of Jewish mysticism, the lunar calendar, holy days of Judaism, the major literary works or Jewish mysticism, and the sacred names of Gael."--BOOK JACKET
