THE SEVENTH TELLING The Kabalah of Moshe Katan, Chefitz, Mitchell
6 Chefitz, Mitchell THE SEVENTH TELLING The Kabalah of Moshe Katan
St. Martin's Griffin 2002 0312289227 / 9780312289225 First Edition Softcover New 
Large softcover, new & unread, has a publisher's marking across bottom edge of pages. 422 pages. Review From Booklist: This ambitious and engaging book, like the Kabbalah itself, has many layers, plumbs to unexpected depths, and will leave the reader tempered, if not transformed, by the reading. Sidney and Stephanie, unhappily married, are telling the stories of Moshe Katan to a small group of students. Moshe, an ordained rabbi and a commodities trader, is also proficient in the dissemination of the Jewish mystical tradition. When he notices, with his trend-spotter's eye, that his wife's cancer may be returning, Moshe asks her to help at a Kabbalah seminar he's teaching, hoping that what she learns will make it easier for her to deal with her fate. There are many stories being told here..... Complete as a work of fiction, this is especially recommended for those who've read about Kabbalah with varying degrees of understanding. Here, the teachings come to life. (*shipping will be reduced to some locations) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
