MALAS Fall 2013 KABBALAH Seminar!

Scott Meltzer

This course will survey the roots, history and symbolism of the Jewish mystical tradition known as Kabbalah. Students will be introduced to the major texts, charismatic mystical masters, and schools of Kabbalah, beginning with the ancient Rabbis through to contemporary exponents of Jewish mysticism such as Hasidim and messianic groups. Particular attention will be focused on the "bible" of Jewish mysticism, the Zohar (Book of Splendour). Understanding the meaning and evolution of Jewish mysticism may also shed light on its current more popular appeal to Jews and non-Jews alike.
