This course will examine several foundational concepts and symbols from the great mystical traditions of Judaism, including the teachings of the Zohar and early Hasidism. In addition to learning about the history of these ideas, we will ask how these spiritual sources might help deepen our own search for meaning and purpose today.
Our instructor will be Rabbi Or Rose, Director of the Center for Global Judaism at Hebrew College.
