The ninth volume of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition completes this running commentary on the Torah. Rabbi Shim’on and his Companions explore passages from the middle of the book of Numbers through the end of Deuteronomy. Among the remarkable sections isRav Metivta, an account of a visionary journey by Rabbi Shim’on and some of the Companions to the Garden of Eden, where they discover secrets of the afterlife. Later in the volume appears the story of theYanuqa (Child)a wunderkind-and-enfant-terrible who amazes and teases, challenges and stumps the rabbis.
Near the very end of the Zohar on the Torah comes the remarkable section known asIdra Zuta (The Small Assembly). This dramatic narrative describes the last gathering of Rabbi Shim’on and the Companions before his death. Here the master reveals profound mysteries of divine being, and then departs from this world to unite ecstatically with the Divine Feminine, Shekhinah. Before departing, Rabbi Shim’on invites all of the Companions to his wedding celebration above.
