Zohar, Page by Page. The Zohar is the central work of Kabbalah. It is actually comprised of several works, the most well-known being a mystical commentary on the Torah’s five Books.    

Sundays: 12:30 PM – 1:45 PM EST   ||  9:30 – 10:45 PST   ||   5:30 – 6:415 England Time ||  7:30 – 8:45 PM Jerusalem Time

The Zohar Class started in 2008.  We are moving through the Zohar page by page.  We are using R. Yehuda Edri’s Hebrew translation of the Aramaic Zohar as our text (which Sarah Yehudit provides). Students have their own English translations as well. (Sarah Yehudit will provide Soncino’s English translation upon request). Hebrew fluency is not required for the class. All Hebrew is translated and the discussions are in English. Sarah Yehudit prepares the text with a variety of commentaries but draws primarily from Zohar Chai and Demesek Eliezer (from the Komarna school of interpretation).

The class is via teleconference.  Students phone in from throughout the world.  The teleconference hub is a US number.  Folks from overseas use Skype-out (or a phone service of that sort) to call in at negligible expense.

The students are quite diverse and represent the full range of denominations, non-denominations, and post-denominations.  Their common bond is a shared passion for the depth and beauty of our wisdom tradition. The class was originally open to both men and women, but only women have attended for several years now.

The class is recorded and those sound files are available for anyone wishing to study a particular passage, or to follow the class from its beginning.  To purchase archives of this class, or to follow it in the present, click HERE.

Weekly Classes

You are What You Hate: A Spiritually Productive Approach to Enemies – The Baal Shem Tov teaches that enemies are always upside-down soul-mate.  The question becomes, what is the most most good-serving, G-d serving (and, surprisingly,  self-serving) response to the testy of enemies and how can I sue their vexation for positive change?.

Sundays: 11:00 AM – 12:15 PM EST   ||  8:00 – 9:15 PST   ||   4:00 – 5:15 England Time ||  6:00 – 7:15 PM Jerusalem Time

Tuesdays:

Tanya—Later Chapters (33 – 53): Tanya is a systematic presentation of the Chassidic world view. All other chassidic writings view a subject (for example the parsha) from a chassidic perspective and the reader must intuit its underlying principles.  Tanya presents all this in a systematic form. The Tuesday class has studied the earlier chapters previously and so we are beginning with the later chapters that offer deep and practical guidance about how to translate the teachings into a spiritual path.

Tuesday: 8:00 – 9:15 PM

Place: Chabad St. 90/16 (Jewish Quarter, Old City). Last Jewish apt. complex before Armenian Quarter in the direction of Zion Gate. Entrance is above the street that passes between the two parking lots and then heads down to the kotel. Brass Gate into courtyard. Left entrance, left staircase, third floor, #16.

Sarah Yehudit’s Tuesday night class began this round of Tanya study (beginning with chapter 33) after Pesach of 2017. We studied the earlier chapters together many years back.

The students in this class have been learning together since the year 2000. It is an advanced class with rich discussion.

Weekly Classes

The Teachings of R. Tsadok HaKohen on Ruach HaKodesh – Rav Tsadok HaKohen is one of the deepest, most daring and articulate teachers of hassidut and kabbalah.  He lived in Lublin, in the 18oo’s. He was a prolific writer whose teachings grapple with complexity and paradox in ways that are especially relevant to our generation. Women Only.

Thursday: 3:00 – 4:30 PM

Place: Lurie home in Old Katamon | 14 HaGadna St. (through front door and up to 3rd floor). Newcomers and visitors are welcome.  30 shekels per class (or whatever you can afford) Contact person: Anne Seham – [email protected]

Rav Tsadok HaKohen is a Chassidic master in the Ishbitz line of chassidut. He lived in Lublin in the 1800’s. He is one of the deepest, most daring and articulate teachers of chassidut and kabbalah.  He was a prolific writer whose teachings grapple with complexity and paradox in ways that are especially relevant to our generation. His teaching are intellectually rigorous but equally heart-centered. He presents a world view that is spacious and compelling. When you step inside Rav Tsadok’s paradigm-shifting vision you cannot help but be transformed.

This is an advanced group of students (in Torah knowledge, professional accomplishment and life experience). The group has been learning together since 2008, but we just started focusing on the teachings of Rav Tsadok Hakohen in 2014.
