Description

Kabbalistic Writings on the Nature of Masculine and Feminine presents annotated translations of kabbalistic texts that paint an authoritative and enlightened vision of how man and woman relate when they have healed themselves and fixed the world. This book not only publicizes Jewish texts that are indisputably authoritative, but also enables people who do not have the skills or resources to access this experience on their own to directly encounter kabbalistic source material. Its luminous wisdom is sure to inspire a respect and affection for the Torah and its traditions. In Kabbalistic Writings on the Nature of Masculine and Feminine, the texts speak for themselves. Their authoritative voices are the soul and might of this work. As proof texts they verify statements made in their name, and as holy texts they transform all who take them to heart.show more

Review quote

I have been positively impressed by Sarah Schneider's knowledge of Torah in general and Chassidut in particular, as well as her command of the English language and ability to articulate even very abstract ideas clearly and succinctly. In addition, I trust her ability to develop and elaborate concepts into cogent, well-researched expositions. -- Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh I have had the pleasure and privilege of knowing Sarah Schneider for over a decade. During this time, she has done what so few of us ever do; she has broken down the borders that keep so many of us from experiencing that elusive something called excellence. -- Tziporah Heller, Senior Lecturer, Neve Yerushalaimshow more
