Dr. Daniel C. Matt is one of the world’s leading authorities on Kabbalah. For twenty years, Daniel served as professor at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, and has also taught at Stanford University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has published over a dozen books, including: Zohar: The Book of Enlightenment, The Essential Kabbalah (translated into seven languages), and God and the Big Bang: Discovering Harmony between Science and Spirituality. Recently, Daniel completed an 18-year project of translating and annotating the Zohar. Earlier this year, Stanford University Press published his ninth volume of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, concluding the Zohar’s main commentary on the Torah. For this work, Daniel has been honored with a National Jewish Book Award and a Koret Jewish Book Award. The Koret award called his translation “a monumental contribution to the history of Jewish thought.”
