GEMS of the Zohar - Part 3 of 3

No charge for CSP and CBI Members
$36 per household - General Public
This series is dedicated in honor of Linda Kaplan and Rabbi Elie Spitz

The Zohar is the masterpiece of Kabbalah, a vast mystical commentary on the Torah, composed in 13th-century Spain. In this 3-part series, we will explore some of the Zohar’s striking ideas, including Ein Sof (God as Infinity), the ten sefirot (aspects of God’s personality), Ayin (mystical nothingness, or no-thingness), Shekhinah (the feminine aspect of God), the mystical meaning of Torah, and God’s need for us. In each session, we will explore passages from the Zohar, translated by Daniel Matt (in The Zohar: Pritzker Edition), supplemented by other material. "
