Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation - 303 Dodge Avenue, Evanston
Most of us have heard of The Zohar, the foundational medieval work in the literature of Jewish mystical thought known as Kabbalah. Many of us have seen quotations from The Zohar yet know little about it. Few of us have had the opportunity to study it as a Jewish text, the way we do with the Torah or the Talmud.
Dr. Daniel Matt is an acclaimed teacher of Jewish spirituality and one of the world’s leading authorities on Kabbalah and The Zohar. He has published over a dozen books, including an eighteen-year project of translating and annotating The Zohar. For this work, Daniel has been honored with a National Jewish Book Award and a Koret Jewish Book Award, which called his translation “a monumental contribution to the history of Jewish thought.”
