The Zohar : Vol 3 : Commentary on the book of Genesis
Full Product Description
Throughout, the Zohar probes the biblical text and seeks deeper meaning—for example, the divine intention behind Joseph’s disappearance, or the profound significance of human sexuality. Divine and human realities intertwine, affecting one another.

If he does, those days themselves are woven into a garment of splendor; at death, they “draw near,” enveloping him, escorting him to the beyond.

The bulk of the Zohar consists of a running commentary on the Torah, from Genesis through Deuteronomy
