The subject of alchemy is rarely discussed by Jewish scholars, but within the legendary history of alchemy, Jews are omnipresent. We will explore Jewish alchemy from metallurgy and distilling to the ten sefirot of the Kabbalists and the Key Jewish alchemical text, Esh Metzaref, (Purifying Fire).
Ira Steingroot is the author of Keeping Passover (HarperSanFrancisco, 1995), All-Purpose Yiddish Knowledge Cards, Jewish Mysticism: the Language of the Kabbalah Knowledge Cards, Jewish Ceremonies and Holidays Knowledge Cards, The Ten Sefirot of the Kabbalah Classic Poster, and All-Purpose Yiddish Calendar 2002 and 2003. He has been writing about music, especially jazz, since 1973 and giving classes on Kabbalah since 1978.
