Daniel Matt’s translation of the Zohar is a masterful approach to one of the most enchanting and intriguing texts of religious literature. – Elie Wiesel
Matt’s work takes my breath away and fills my soul with the joy of discovery.– Francine Klagsbrun, Jewish and feminist author and activist
A monumental achievement of serious scholarship. At a time when so much nonsense is purveyed in the name of Kabbalah…it’s a blessing to have the authentic Zohar made accessible. – Rabbi Harold Kushner
