The Talmud: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little booklet is a fairly good guide to the basic understanding of the Jewish Talmud- rather than provide a massive and complex overview (as many works on Judaism) it condenses things pretty nicely and was meant mainly for the casual studier of religion more than for those intending to become experts- indeed the original edition had several dozen pages of ads for similar works- common at the time (which are useless now of course.)

It gives a bit of discourse on the difference between the Jewish writings themselves and the opinions and interpretations thereof, remarking that in many cases the latter is preferable as the former is so difficult to understand otherwise.

The Tabernacle: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

And now it’s time for a happy surprise- one final occult work to release before 2019 begins. It’s quite a great one also- compiled from sermons and writings from the renowned Presbyterian George Junkin. It covers the architecture of the Jewish Temple in minute detail and offers (sometimes inferred) symbolism and other asides. Altogether it’s painstakingly detailed, and the amount of content here would take up twice as many pages were it not for the compacted writing style. It is strongly recommended to anyone with interest in the era of Moses, even if some of the historicity is taken less seriously now than in the 1860s.

Jewish Mysticism: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

One of a number of interesting spiritual works released by the same publisher in the 1910s, Abelsons’ treatment of mysticism within Judaism here is quite good, expansive, and sometimes dense, but technically an introductory overview of magickal concepts within Kabbalah.

Speaking of the Yetzirah and Zohar among other works, it is somewhat a work of linguistic anthropology, which makes sense, since a lot of the theological and mystic concepts of Jewish spiritual lore are fundamentally derived from the Hebrew language and number systems.
