Kabbalah: The Mystic Quest in Judaism

The course will make the Jewish mystical tradition- including Kabbalah and Hasidism- clear and comprehensible to adult learners. The topics include the Infinite God of Kabbalah, the ten Sefirot, the feminine aspect of God, the soul, the mystical meaning of Torah and Jewish rituals, Lurianic (Safed) Kabbalah, Hasidism, and Jewish meditation. This course is based on David Ariel’s Kabbalah: The Mystic Quest in Judaism.
