4-Part Lecture Series: Kabbalah – It’s Traditional Texts and Historical Practice

Lecture Series: Kabbalah – It’s Traditional Texts and Historical Practice with Ze’ev Aviezer

Kabbalah is an ancient Jewish interpretation of the Bible and not, as is commonly believed, mysticism. Through the study of essential Jewish mystical and kabbalistic source texts dating back to the 2nd century B.C.E., including Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Creation), Sefer Bahir (Book Illumination), the first Kabbalistic text, the Zohar and many other fundamental Kabbalistic texts, this course will explore Kabbalah’s pre-history and history, evolving rituals, traditions, and intriguing personalities. We will end by surveying Kabbalah’s relevancy to us today and answer the question — is Maddona a Kabbalist?

Instructor Ze’ev Aviezer is an Adult Jewish Educator from Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion. He teaches adult education courses for Scarsdale Adult School, Larchmont-Mamaroneck Continuing Education, and at Mid-Westchester JCC, Greenwich JCC, Beth El Synagogue, Larchmont Temple and for WAJE (Westchester Adult Jewish Education).
