It is worth trying to get hold of the bilingual edition of "Likutei
Amarim-Tanya" which is a modern standard 'Hasidic work with Hebrew and
English on facing pages.  It has a description of the Sephiroth in an
appendix, and uses a lot of Kabbalist terminology in its commentaries.

(They spell themselves as Chassidim).  One of their Brookline (Boston)
members was greatly inpressed with my "Keys to Kabbalah" and made a
point of visiting me in England. [smirk].
