"A community is too heavy
for anyone to carry alone."
Deuteronomy Rabbah, 1:10

San Diego Center for Jewish Culture is grateful to the Joseph & Dorothy Goldberg Charitable Trust for their vision, enthusiasm, and support of this project.


Topic: History and Current Issues

Region: Mid-Coastal/Central

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.
