Class #1 - Who, What, Why, When, and Where?

Our introductory class will explain how and where kabbalah fits into Judaism and the Torah. We will take a brief journey from the Prophet Ezekiel to the Baal Shem Tov and the scientific revolution.

  • Do I have to wait until I’m 40 to study kabbalah?
  • Is kabbalah Jewish?
  • The concept of Infinity: Can G‑d create a rock that He can’t pick up?

Class #2 - The Fundamentals of Kabbalah

Become familiar with and understand the basic tenants, questions, and themes woven within the tapestry of kabbalah.

  • The Ten Sefirot: the building blocks of creation
  • Tzimtzum: why don’t I see or sense G‑d?
  • The 'Four Worlds': experiencing deeper dimension of reality - the kabbalah of dreams.
  • 'Lights & Vessels': do we judge a book by its cover?


Class #3 - The Kabbalah of Men & Women:

Kabbalah sees creation and life in terms masculine and feminine energies. This final class will analyze these two energies and explain their role in our relationships.  

  • The secret of “malchut”
  • The kabbalah of relationships and intimacy
  • G‑d: Male, female, or it?
