Glossary, list of Hebrew letters, Biblical index and subject index. From the publisher: "Under the auspices of the Bronfman Library of Jewish Classics, this historic publication of Gates of Light allows readers to enter the hidden world of the Kabbalah and its profound and beautiful Biblical interpretation. This central text of Jewish mysticism was written in thirteenth-century Spain, where Kabbalah flourished. Considered to be the most articulate work on the mystical Kabbalah, Gates of Light provides a systematic and comprehensive explanation of the Names of God and their mystical applications. The Kabbalah presents a unique strategy for intimacy with the Creator and new insights into the Hebrew scriptures. In the Kabbalah, aspects of God emanate from the hierarchy of Ten Spheres interconnected by channels that may be disrupted or repaired through human activity." Appears "As new" but for a faint square "sticker shadow" to the upper part of the front pastedown. Thus a bright clean copy in near Fine condition in a near-Fine unclipped dust jacket protected by a removable mylar sleeve. Item #69937
