The Aramaic Language of the Zohar

Resources for studying Kabbalah in the original language

English to Aramaic thesaurus

Leave a comment

With thanks to everyone who has been using this site, we have just added new material. I am most excited about Judy Barrett’s English to Aramaic glossary of the Zohar (draft, posted on the Dictionary page). This is a thesaurus, organizing the Zohar’s Aramaic vocabulary by concepts. In addition, if you wish to write something in Zoharic Aramaic, this is an essential resource. Perhaps some of your original Aramaic writings will find their way into future editions of the Zohar 🙂

Please let us know how you found this site, how you are finding it useful, and suggestions for improvement. See the About page for more on what is available here and how it is organized.

Blessings on your learning,

Justin Jaron Lewis (webmaster)

Judy Barrett, independent scholar, is working on a practical dictionary of the Aramaic language of the Zohar and other resources for students, with the support of Justin Jaron Lewis, University of Manitoba. (Shim'on Bar Yohai is the legendary author of the Zohar.)
