The Thirteen Petalled Rose: A Discourse on the Essence of Jewish Existence and Belief, by Adin Steinsaltz is a book that delves into Kabbalah in a way that explains it on a level that everyone can understand.

Rabbi Steinsaltz takes the reader through the mysteries of the the energy of the universe, and how that energy is illuminated or diminished by our very actions. Goodness and mitzvahs evoke sparks that lift the universal energy to a higher level. While on the other hand, our transgressions cause the energy of the universe to diminish, or be brought down to a lower level. He also explains the concept of angels and how angels are created. Rabbi Steinsaltz’s concepts are fascinating. Blessings are born from mitzvah deeds, that is one thing he makes clear.

I recommend The Thirteen Petalled Rose to anyone interested in the Jewish foundation and concepts of kabbalah. It will give readers a strong structural perspective and understanding of the basics of kabbalah. Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz is brilliant in his explanations and insights, and conveys his astuteness and interpretations to the reader ( )
