What is the difference between these 3 series of sefarim: the Zohar Hakadosh, the Tikounei Zohar and the Zohar Hadash? Also, what is the Matok Midevash in the Zohar?

1 Answer 1


The Holy Zohar is formatted as a commentary on the 5 books of Moses.

The Tikunim is formatted a series of commentaries on the first word in the Torah (Bereshis).

The Zohar Hadash is additional teachings, and formatted as a commentary on the 5 books of Moses, as well as on the megillos etc.

Mtuk Mdvash is a recent commentary of the Zohar by Rav Daniel Frisch ZTz'l; extremely popular nowadays.

    @ShmuelBrin I think the name refers to the widespread release of the manuscripts, which were printed to the community around 30 years after the release of the first part, "The Zohar"
