By Robert Zucker
(Editor's Note: I am finishing a new book on the legends and history of Kabbalah and the Book of Creation that will be published soon and available on Amazon. These are some of the pages that will be included. If interested, please email [email protected] to be informed when the book is ready.)
The Internet is full of web sites on "Sefer Yetzirah" (also spelled as Sefer Yesirah, Sefer Yezirah or Sefer Yezira, among other spellings).
Many of these sites have been online for years and provide a good source of understanding and personal commentaries.
Some of these links have been hard to find. Many go out of service, have become password protected to limit outside visitors or have changed their focus or domain.
This list of Sefer Yetzirah web site's is updated often. New links are added as they are discovered or suggested.
One great discovery is a Czech web site with Hebrew texts of several version of Sefer Yetzirah along with other great Kabbalah works. This is a newly updated link.
The Sefer Yetzirah text in Hebrew and English can easily be found on the Internet. Some sites with the Hebrew text of Sefer Yetzirah.
Since the Sefer Yetzirah is open to much interpretation, controversy and discussion, there is one true, difinitve source. A true Qabalist must take all of the sources into context and decide which combinations suit their own path.

- SEFER YETZIRAH Bibliography by William Benjamin Compiled by Scott J. Thompson [The following bibliography combines original scholarship and translation. It combines the substance of the annotated bibliography in Lazarus Goldschmidt's Sepher Jesirah: Das Buch der Schöpfung (1894), but has been chronologically arranged in the manner of Adolf Jellinek's Beiträge zur Geschichte der Kabbalah (1852) and updated. It does not purport to be complete and is always being revised.]
