Few days before Yahrzeit (23 Tammuz, this year June 25) of  the one of the greatest of all kabbalists Rabbi Moshe Cordovero, Israeli developer Elyahu Sheetrit released his new app Esh Tomer Devora.

Tomer Devorah (“The Palm Tree of Deborah”) is one of the books for which Rabbi Moshe Cordovero is known. Sefer Tomer Devorah describes how man should adapt and adopt G-d’s Thirteen Attributes of Mercy, transforming himself  from mere human to a G-dly individual. It offers an eye-opening  journey of  self-discovery and character refinement.

Rabbi Moshe Cordovero was born in 1522 in Safed, the city that was soon to become famed as a center of Kabbalah. At a young age, he already gained a reputation as an extroardinary genius. Besides his knowledge in Kabbalah, he was a Talmudic scholar and philosopher of the highest rank, and was widely respected in these fields. He was even one of the four to receive the specialsemichah-ordination from Rabbi Yaakov Beirav in 1538, along with Rabbis Yosef  Caro (Cordovero’s teacher in Jewish Law), Moshe of Trani and Yosef Sagis, all of whom were much older and better known than the young prodigy.

But Rabbi Moshe’s main interest was the systematization of the Kabbalah, setting it into a philosophical structure. So respected was he in this endeavor that he was the first Kabbalist honored by having the word “the” added before his initials, and even today is known as “The RaMaK” (more about him read here).

Esh Tomer Devora is a Hebrew only app with nikud and search option.
