What the Critics Say

"This book is a useful introduction for those who wish to investigate arcane elements of Jewish theology and philosophy." (Publishers Weekly)
“Zetter, a longtime journalist on Jewish and Israeli topics, has done an admirable job making Kabbalah accessible, with clear descriptions of the history of Kabbalah, its theology, and of the mystical Tree of Life at its center.” (Library Journal)
“Zetter has written a masterful account of the influence of Kabbalah on mankind over the ages and a respectful look at this part of Jewish culture and thought. Theodore Bikel, one of our most respected and beloved actors, gives this material the reverence it deserves by transcending awareness of himself and inhabiting the essence of the author's message.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Small, Simple, Great!!!

Any additional comments?

With a precise language, the author discusses SHORTLY about the principles of Kabbalah. A very nice mnemonic on all the lexicon of the basic words and characters of the history of Kabbalah. Indicated for beginners and early stdents, but for those who already studied for years... It is still a very good memory strenghtner.
The narrator pronounces the hebrew words correctly, with an acceptable and pleasant accent. Five stars, indeed, for fulfilling its task.
