Assignment 9: the Kohen brothers

1. On your own, read Early Kabbalah, 153-182.

2. Try to diagram the Kohen understanding of the sefirotic world. Where does evil fit? How does evil relate to the rest of the sefirot? What are 3 ideas in the essay "On the Left Emanation" that stand out for you? Why?

3. Discuss with your study partner both sets of your ideas. What questions do you have about them? What implications for mysticism might they have?
