Daniel Abrams's picture is proud to announce the publication of

Moses Cordovero’s Angels: Kabbalah and Magic, by Yoed Kadary המלאכים של ר' משה קורדובירו: בין קבלה עיונית לקבלה מעשית, in Hebrew (Sources and Studies in the Literature of Jewish Mysticism 70; 2022, 420 pages, ISBN 978-1-933379-97-5). This book offers a sustained reading of R. Moses Cordovero’s writings on magic and practical Kabbalah and analyzes the role of angels in theory and practice. As a study on subjects which were marginalized in past studies of the works of major Kabbalists, this monograph advances the field in a reassessing the intellectual profile of this prolific and influential Kabbalist.
