In this class we’ll get an opportunity to study the thought, practices and lives of some of the most profound and influential Jewish mystics of the modern era. We will delve deeply into some middle and later Hasidic masters. We will also look at the 20th- and 21st-century figures who took Jewish mysticism into new directions, such as Abraham Isaac Kook, Abraham Joshua Heschel and Zalman Schachter Shalomi, and contemporary teachers of mystical Judaism, such as Shefa Gold and Arthur Green.

English translations of texts will always be available and the class is open to all. The instructor is Rabbi Natan Margalit.

This 10-week course will meet Thursdays from Oct. 24 to Jan. 16  (except for holidays).
