For thousands of years, no book has been more shrouded in mystery than the Zohar, yet no book offers greater wisdom to humankind. As the central text of Kabbalah, the Zohar was conceived by the ancient kabbalists as a guide for gaining fulfillment in the material world and for drawing closer to the sacred light of the spiritual realm. In The Essential Zohar, the eminent kabbalist Rav P. S. Berg thoroughly fulfills this intention, interpreting the Zohar’s teachings on evil, redemption, human relationships, wealth and poverty, and many other issues from a practical, contemporary perspective. The Zohar and Kabbalah have traditionally been known as the world’s most esoteric sources of spiritual knowledge, but Rav Berg has dedicated his life to making this wisdom universally available. In truth, the Zohar came into being as a gift to all humanity. The Essential Zohar at last brings that gift to the world.Shanks, Hershel is the author of 'Jerusalem' with ISBN 9780679445265 and ISBN 0679445269.
