The Palm Tree of Devorah
Rabbi Moshe Cordovero was one of the greatest Kabbalists (Jewish Mystics) of the 16th century. He was a prolific author, and "The Palm Tree of Devorah" may be one of his most famous works. This edition includes an introduction, translation and annotations by Rabbi Moshe Miller.
The introduction includes a nice biography of Cordovero, a description of his works and a very brief explanation of the principles of his Kabbalah. The notes on the book follow after the translation, and include explanations of some difficult terms and sources.
"The Palm Tree of Devorah" is set forth clearly in Hebrew alongside an English translation.
This work is a Kabbalistic exposition of the biblical commandment to emulate God. Cordovero describes the attributes of God such as kindness, compassion and patience, and explains how to emulate these attributes. This book is intended for laymen and scholars.
