Introduction to Kabbalah - Kobi Gil
 
This class will study the introductory Kabbalah teachings from Yehuda Leib Halevi Ashlag, "Ba'al Hasulam" (1884-1954), spiritual visionary known for his revolutionary commentary on the Zohar, the Sulam ("The Ladder").
 
The class will have ten lessons, beginning on 12/25/18, that will discuss the spiritual laws of the Torah and the world, and we will learn the structure of the progression of divine presence from the heavenly spheres down to our world as we perceive it.
 
Some the questions and topics raised will be: What is the purpose of our being and our existence? What is the unique role of the Jewish people?
What is the meaning of holy or sacred and profane, pure and impure, and how can they be distinguished? How can i know if i am on the right path to achieve my life goal ? And other investigations into Jewish spirituality.
 
When: Next two Wednesdays, following two Tuesdays.

Jewish Living on One Foot – Intro to Basic Jewish Observance

Four session (1.5 hr) course - JCM Wednesdays 6:30pm -8:00pm, Shayna Nechama Naveh

 

The goal of this course is to offer a taste of the beauty and simplicity of living a Jewish lifestyle and to begin to unload the word observant. There is a common perception that living an observant Jewish life is complicated and difficult. In reality it is quite simple. Topics covered will include daily blessings and prayers, Shabbat, Kashrut, and living in intention.
