Assignment 11

Review your readings in Early Kabballah and Blumenthal on the development of the sefirot. List 10 associations each for Tiferet and Malkhut that you have found so far, what excerpts they are found in, and the reasons for the association if they are explained.

For Tiferet: Tree of Life, Zohar, "The Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil", "the Tree of Life was in the middle of the Garden", i.e., the sefirot. The Tree of Life represents unification. It is also a name for the Written Torah (Zohar on the Torah handout and Isaac the Blind, "On the Mystical Torah") which is also associated with Tiferet.
