Kabbalah: The Mystic Quest in Judaism

This course is based on David Ariel’s Kabbalah: The Mystic Quest in Judaism. The goal of the course is to 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, and the mystical meaning of Jewish rituals.
