Item description for Ethical Tales from the Kabbalah: Stories from the Kabbalistic Ethical Writings by Aryeh Wineman...
Fifty-four charming and evocative tales, especially translated from Hebrew for this volume, recapture a rich yet virtually forgotten chapter in the history of Jewish narrative. They form the important transistional link between the esoteric mystical teachings of the sixteen-century kabbalists and the populists tales of the eighteenth-century Eastern European Hasidim. The author's running commentary further enhances the reader's appreciation of this capitivating material.
