Daniel Matt will be presenting From Kabbalah to the Big Bang: Ancient Wisdom and Contemporary Spirituality  

All Scholar in Residence lectures are free and open to the public. There is a $25/person charge for the Friday Night dinner.

The 5778 Scholar in Residence, Daniel Matt, is one of the world’s leading authorities on Kabbalah.  Recently, Daniel completed an 18-year project of translating and annotating the Zohar. Stanford University Press published his ninth volume of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, concluding the Zohar’s main commentary on the Torah. For this work, Daniel has been honored with a National Jewish Book Award and a Koret Jewish Book Award. The Koret award called his translation “a monumental contribution to the history of Jewish thought.”

The goal of a life of Torah is to bring more love and healing into the world. How can we do this when there is so much anger and division that surrounds us? Our sages were no strangers to hardship and heartbreak. Yet, they devised a system that, if done well, leads us toward gratitude and compassion, both for ourselves and for others. We will examine numerous texts, from Torah to Talmud to the Zohar.

This class is offered in two different time slots. Please register for either Tuesday mornings or Tuesday evenings.

Tuesday mornings: 9:30-10:45 AM, October 3 – December 12 (No class 11/21)

Tuesday evenings: 7:00-8:00 PM, October 17 – November 14

 

No charge. Everyone is welcome, including drop-ins (but we appreciate your registration in advance). Donations to the CBS Adult Education program are appreciated.
