The 5778 Scholar in Residence, Daniel Matt, is one of the world’s leading authorities on Kabbalah.  Recently, Daniel completed an 18-year project of translating and annotating the Zohar. Stanford University Press published his ninth volume of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, concluding the Zohar’s main commentary on the Torah. For this work, Daniel has been honored with a National Jewish Book Award and a Koret Jewish Book Award. The Koret award called his translation “a monumental contribution to the history of Jewish thought.”
