Join us as we explore spiritual ideas central to human existence— faith, flourishing, home, love, kindness, destiny and more.
In this beit midrash we will explore one theme for each series of classes, primarily through the lens of the Jewish mystical tradition—Kabbalah and Hasidut. We will also study wisdom from other faiths, such as Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam, alongside secular texts from from literary works, philosophy and psychoanalysis. The format for this hour will be that of a traditional Jewish house of study. Following an introductory presentation, students will move into havruta, guided study in pairs or small groups. This will be followed by a brief lecture, group discussion and questions.
This is a drop-in class. Participants should feel free to join as they can. We encourage regular attendance so that participants can draw the most meaning from this study experience.
