KABBALAH FOR DUMMIES
Topic: History and Current Issues
Description: Jewish mysticism, or Kabbalah, has been shrouded in mystery and tied in “red strings.” It is, however, simply
a way of understanding the relationship between the infinitely incomprehensible (G-d) and the finite universe.
In this class, we will study the Kabbalistic understanding of G-d, creation, and the human soul.
