About this Text
Sha'are Orah, or Sefer ha-Orah, (שערי אורה) is Gikatilla's most influential work. It discusses 300 names of God and organized into ten chapters, one for each sephirah. Each sephirah has one main name, but may have many others. Some names are associated with more than one sephirah. The Arizal call it "a key to understanding the mystical studies". The Vilna Gaon and Zundel Salant recommended that their students study it.
