Where We Go From Here

We’ll be beginning Section 2 now, entitled Sephirot, which is comprised of Petachim 5 and 6.

Starting off with a review of the classical sources of the concept of the Sephirot, we’ll then present some pre-Ari definitions, and then offer Ari’s own, given that Ramchal’s approach is rooted in Ari’s.

After that we’ll offer our translation of the Mishnayot of Petachim 5 and 6, then an analysis of the section en toto, bit by bit.
