Kabbalah: A Jewish Theology
View outline (PDF)
Course Dates: July 4-8
Kabbalah (“received tradition”) is a metaphorical tapestry of Jewish texts, practices, and ideas that invite deep spiritual and theological reflection. Together, we will enter this tapestry, following the shape of its historical development. Using primary and secondary texts along with reflective experiences, we will explore kabbalistic interpretations of creation, God’s nature, prayer, and Hebrew Bible.
