Jewish Mysticism 101

The language and symbols of Jewish mysticism are ancient, rich and foundational. Hebrew letters and words, biblical heroes and heroines, and numerous geometric depictions and metaphors constitute the rich imagery of this useful and universal system. Due to migrations of the Jewish people from before the Roman period until now, the symbol sets have moved throughout the world, intersecting with ancient eastern and western mystical schools, including Wicca, astrology, mystical Christianity and tarot.
Jewish Mysticism 101 will cover basic Jewish cosmology, answering the age-old questions of: what we are made of and what we are here for. We will also explore the basic vocabulary of The Tree of Life (The Ten Sephirot), one of the most well known symbol sets in Jewish mysticism.
Come! This will be fun and illuminating. Free to members. $15 per class/$20 for the set for not-yet-members. Limited space available; register by emailing [email protected] or calling 413-773-5884.
