about this book

For thousands of years, no book has been more shrouded in mystery than the Zohar, yet no book offers us greater wisdom.

The central text of Kabbalah, the Zohar is a commentary on the Bible’s narratives, laws, and genealogies and a map of the spiritual landscape. In The Essential Zohar, the eminent kabbalist Rav P. S. Berg decodes its teachings on evil, redemption, human relationships, wealth and poverty, and other fundamental concerns 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 concentrated distillation of infinite wisdom available to people of all faiths so that we may use its principles to live each day in harmony with the divine.

“This work is a remarkable achievement. It renders esoteric thought in so lucid a manner as to give the serious reader entry into the depths of human wisdom. It uncovers a range of possibility once thought to be more mythic than real. It offers us once and future knowledge, now more necessary than ever before.”
—Jean Houston, author of A Mythic Life
