Matt on the Zohar

NPR INTERVIEW: Decades Later, Translation Of Jewish Text Will Open Zohar's Gates To English Speakers.

Now we'd like to tell you about an important Jewish text that will finally be available in English. In May, publishers will release the final volume of the first authoritative English translation of "The Zohar." Judy Silber from member station KALW in San Francisco tells us about the significance of this text and about the scholar who's dedicated nearly two decades to revealing its secrets.
That scholar is, of course, Daniel Matt.

For many, many past posts on the Zohar and on the English translation of it headed by Prof. Matt, start here and here and follow the links.
