The Evolution of Kabbalah
Prerequisite Note: Due to the virtual setting of this class, you must have computer capability, including internet access, in order to participate. A camera is also optimal but not required.
Kabbalah as an aspect of Judaism unfolded over the course of 2500 years, often in neglected or overlooked corners of the Jewish world. This course will cover the evolution of the kabbalistic doctrines and ideas.
These ideas and systems of Kabbalah proceeded through history with a great inevitability, culminating in many of the principle Jewish social movements of the modern age. The lecture will be more concerned with the inner teachings of Jewish mysticism than with the social history of the movement.
This course is suitable for beginners in the field of Kabbalah.
