Here is the mesmerizing story of what happened to this magnificent scholar after his encounter with the tyranny of Rome. To avoid capture by the Emperor, Rabbi Shimon and his son were forced to hide in a cave where they remained for 13 years. Secluded and sustained by miracles, father and son plumbed the depths of Torah study and authored the mystical teachings that later became the sacred text known as the Zohar.
Lavishly illustrated and beautifully told, the glorious Story of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, steeped in Jewish tradition, will excite, inform, and inspire young readers of all backgrounds.
