Welcome to the Zohar - February 16, 2017

February 16th, 2017

Taught by Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon 

The Zohar is the great medieval compendium of mysticism, myth, and esoteric teaching.  One of the most important bodies of religious texts of all times and places, it is also a lush literary celebration of love, expressed in sensuous religious language.  The Zohar's secret universe serves as the basis of Kabbalistic faith and is, at heart, a work of sacred fantasy.  

This remarkable work is explored using the new translation by Danny Matt, which enables even novice students of the Kabbalah to approach and understand the pivotal text.  In a guided exploration of this seminal work of mysticism, Rabbi Cohon helps open the "locked garden" of the Zohar in an interactive discussion class using both intellectual and meditation techniques.

The Genesis Project: The Sole of the Torah - February 7, 2017

February 15th, 2017

Taught by Rabbi Sandy Seltzer
 
What is the purpose of creation? Is the Garden of Eden an account, a myth, or a metaphor? The “Sole of the Torah” delves into the undersurface (the “sole”) of the Torah. We begin at Genesis 1:1 and will continue to read and discuss this fundamental text of Judaism every week. The Genesis Project differs from weekly Shabbat Torah Study in that it is a continuous reading of Torah rather than being limited to the weekly Torah portion. The goal is a continuous reading to better understand the flow and linkages throughout the Torah.
