"The Pritzker edition...serves up the Zohar lucidly and clearly for the reader of English.For the first time, the modern reader is given the keys to a classic text from the Jewish bookshelf, and a broad opening is created to an understanding of the world of medieval kabbala and the streams branching off from it." -- Omri Shasha * Haaretz *
