Temple Mount Sinai’s Scholar-in-Residence Weekend

December 1-3, 2017

  • The Development of Kabbalah and the Shekhinah (Presence of God)

  • The Mystical Meaning of the Torah

  • Raising the Sparks: Finding God in the Material World

  • The Zohar: Masterpiece of the Kaballah

  • God and the Big Bang: Discovering the Harmony Between Science and Spirituality

Dr. Daniel Matt is the author of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, a groundbreaking translation of, and commentary on, the crown jewel of Jewish mysticism.  He is also the author of The Essential Kabbalah, the #1 Amazon best seller in Mysticism and Kabbalah.

Prior to embarking on the 18-year process of producing The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, Dr. Matt was a professor at the UC Berkeley-affiliated Graduate Theological Union.

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
