Description: The first two volumes of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, translated with commentary by Daniel C. Matt cover more than half of the Zohar s commentary on the Book of Genesis (through Genesis 32:3). This is the first translation ever made from a critical Aramaic text of the Zohar, which has been established by Professor Matt based on a wide range of original manuscripts. The extensive commentary, appearing at the bottom of each page, clarifies the kabbalistic symbolism and terminology, and cites sources and parallels from biblical, rabbinic, and kabbalistic texts. The translator s introduction is accompanied by a second introduction written by Arthur Green, discussing the origin and significance of the Zohar.
