The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon

The Sephardic Cycle: Book #1
By Richard Zimler
Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki / 13 hours 28 minutes

The Last Kabbalist ofLisbon, an international bestseller, is an extraordinary novel thattransports listeners into the universe of Jewish Kabbalah during the Lisbonmassacre of April 1506. Just a few years earlier, Jews living in Portugal weredragged to the baptismal font and forced to convert to Christianity. Many ofthese “New Christians” persevered in their Jewishprayers and rituals in secret and at great risk; the hidden, arcane practices of the kabbalists, amystical sect of Jews, continued as well.

One such secret Jew was Berekiah Zarco, an intelligent youngmanuscript illuminator. Inflamed by love and revenge, he searches, in thecrucible of the raging pogrom, for the killer of his beloved uncle Abraham, arenowned kabbalist and manuscript illuminator, discovered murdered in a hiddensynagogue along with a young girl in dishabille. Risking his life in streetsseething with mayhem, Berekiah tracks down answers among Christians, NewChristians, Jews, and the fellow kabbalists of his uncle, whose secret languageand codes by turns light and obscure the way to the truth he seeks.

A marvelous story, a challenging mystery, and atelling tale of the evils of intolerance, TheLast Kabbalist of Lisbon both compels and entertains.
