Journey into Tehillim started in June of 2016. We are studying and meditating on the Psalms and have started with the psalms that are part of the Pesukei d’Zimra section of the morning prayers.

The class is comprised of mature professionals—skilled and practiced meditators—whose knowledge and observance of Judaism runs the gamut.

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 class is open to both men and women.

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.

Sarah Yehudit’s Tuesday night class began studying her book,You Are What You Hate in 2013. We began with the first half of the book and explored the source texts that underlie the kabbalistic world view upon which the Baal Shem Tov bases his teachings on enemies. The first months were spent studying the kabbalistic teachings about Adam and Eve and about the seven universes created and destroyed before our own (or 8th in the sequence. These we studied before even opening the book.

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.

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.
