A tale of wandering sages, wondrous characters, and adventures through celestial realms, The Seven Palaces of Breath is a journey into the mysteries of being.

A bilingual children's book for adults and an adults' book for children, The Seven Palaces of Breath is a unique collaboration between a scholar of Jewish mysticism, Kabbalah, and an award-winning illustrator.

Described by his best friend Isaac Bashevis Singer as “the greatest Yiddish poet,” Aaron Zeitlin’s (1898-1973) mystical poem is based on a story from the 13th century Book of Radiance, Sefer ha-Zohar, the masterpiece of medieval Kabbalah.

Nathan Wolski’s playful translation and Anita Lester’s Chagall-like-Dali-esque illustrations give Zeitlin's mystical Yiddish poem a new life.
