“Worthy is the generation in which this text is revealed.”
Tiqqunei ha-Zohar 111b
Tiqqunei ha-Zohar (TZ), sometimes called Tikkunei Zohar, is one the most important books of Kabbalah ever produced. It has profoundly influenced Jewish ideas and practice for the past 800 years. Unlike its sister text, the Zohar, which has multiple English editions, TZ has never been fully translated into English or any Western language.
Translated by David Solomon, this ground-breaking bilingual publication is slated for release early in 2024. Solomon, an experienced translator of Hebrew and Aramaic texts and Managing Editor at Margalya Press, has dedicated more than a decade to the creation of this extraordinary work of scholarship. His translation is a remarkable example of clarity and beauty, while also preserving the poetry of the original text.
The release of this translation will mark a major moment in contemporary Jewish publishing. The TZ publication will be one of the most significant texts of Jewish mysticism produced globally this generation and the most important Jewish literary project ever to emerge from Australia.
