Kabbalah: the word evokes images of wonder-working rabbis soaring through celestial halls and palaces, envisioning heavenly thrones and chariots, making golems, casting out dybbuks, and engaging in spiritual battle with the Other Side and the night witch Lilith. Kabbalah is also the term for the 2,500-year tradition of mysticism that underpins Judaism. Kabbalah made clear to the Jewish people why they suffered, the reasons for the mitzvot (commandments), the linking of the upper and lower worlds, and every individual’s indispensable role in returning the scattered sparks lost in our world to their source in the divine realm. In this deck of 48 Knowledge Cards, each card presents a kabbalistic technical term on one side; on the cards’ opposite sides, author and lecturer Ira Steingroot introduces Kabbalah by explaining these concepts from the Jewish mystical tradition.
