“…an impressive and lucid, erudite book… Dan Cohn-Sherbok has the rare scholarly ability to clearly encapsulate the complexities of Kabbalah.”
Z’ev Ben Shimon Halevi, Principal of the Kabbalah Society

This dictionary makes centuries of kabbalistic work accessible. Its topics range from the mysteries of the Godhead to the order of the universe, its different worlds and inhabitants. It covers early Merkavah mysticism, the golden era of medieval Spain, the flowering in Safed, the Hasidic movement of eastern Europe and the modern era. Fascinating biographies bring to life the story of those people who formulated and developed Kabbalah.

The Dictionary of Kabbalah and Kabbalists is an invaluable source book for both scholars and students of Kabbalah.
