With Daniel Matt, Ph.D.
In these two sessions we will explore some of the essential teachings of Kabbalah, the Jewish mystical tradition.
Among the themes to be covered are Ein Sof (God as Infinity), Shekhinah (the feminine aspect of God), the mystical meaning of Torah, finding God in the material world, and God’s need for the human being.
The texts will be drawn from Daniel Matt’s The Essential Kabbalah and his translation of the Zohar.
Daniel Matt, Ph.D. is a leading authority on Kabbalah, who has been featured in Time, Newsweek, and NPR. His books include The Essential Kabbalah and God and the Big Bang: Discovering Harmony between Science and Spirituality. Over 18 years, he composed a 9-volume annotated translation of the Zohar—The Zohar: Pritzker Edition—which has been hailed as “a monumental contribution to the history of Jewish thought.” He has taught at Stanford University and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Currently he teaches Zohar online: www.sup.org/zohar/course
