Kabbalah is a Jewish theology built on the premise that, although God is unknowable, we can experience spirituality by receiving the emanations from this unknowable source.  Through these we become partners in ongoing creation, we receive the capability to feel holiness, we receive guidance on ethics in our day-to-day lives and on repentance when we sin, and we become discoverers of new ideas, Torah interpretations, aspects of ourselves and understandings of the world around us.

Learn the basic concepts and applications of Kabbalah to Jewish practice and observance, to Shabbat, to celebration of the Holidays, to wedding rituals, to repentance and to our understanding of sin.

This mini-course will provide a foundation for enhancing your understanding and practice of Judaism as well as an opportunity to later join Dr. McCrensky’s ongoing drop-in advanced Kabbalah class.
