Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism

An Introductory Anthology

Dan Cohn-Sherbok

Traditionally, ‘kabbalah’ refers to the teachings of Jewish mystics, their reflections on the Divine and their experiences of God: through Kabbalah, we embark upon a spiritual quest to discover God, our souls and the nature of the world. In this fascinating anthology of Jewish mystical texts, Dan Cohn-Sherbok traces the tradition’s development from the early rabbinic period to its present day resurgence.

Beginning with an illuminating introduction to its history, this book presents the important texts which underpin Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism, with supporting explanations provided to help readers unfamiliar with the subject.

Essential for a deep understanding of this esoteric spiritual quest, Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism will captivate the interested reader and student alike.
