Manuscript in Hebrew on paper.
Ca. 18th century.
MS X893 Se3
Rare Book and Manuscript Library
One of the better-known aspects of Jewish mysticism is the concept of sefirot, or the ten levels of God's manifestations, illustrated beautifully in this manuscript. Unfortunately, the edge of the diagram was cut, most likely during rebinding of the manuscript, and so the final sefira, that of Malkhut (Kingship) is not visible.
Gift of Congregation Temple Emanu-El, 1892.
