    An excellent, pocket sized collection of poems, prayers, sayings, and stories from Jewish traditions throughout Europe and the Middle East Selections from the Zohar, the Baal Shem Tov, Martin Buber, Abraham Abulafia, Levi Yitzchak of Berditchov, and many Strongly recommended.

    Besserman offers a fair breadth of Jewish mystical writings Kabbalists to Hasidim and in a small, easy to pack for travel edition My only drawback is that she doesn t give the original source references other than author s name , so unless you know where to look, finding the quote in the original can be tough.

    this is a collection of orally passed down stories i guess i like it not because i am looking for some familiarity with my religion as a child, but because we too tell stories like this they are great stories and have good morals and some are also twisted also, i always was teased with this notion that there was this mystical magical part of my religion and i still don t believe in g0d but i was not let into the secret library currently, i am trying to find the library WHERE IS IT

    decent introduction to the Kabbalah it is a fairly short read a good further reading bibliographie section helped me learn a lot i could see someone describing this book as topical or a general overview of the Kabbalah Jewish Mysticism but i think that would be inaccurate reductive for those new to the Kabbalah as i am this book is a good demystifying 1st step towards seeking greater knowledge it is up to you to do so
