Center for Jewish Peoplehood

The Lehrhaus Philosophy Circle - The Zohar continues for a second year under the leadership of Professor Daniel C. Matt and utilizing his epic translation and annotation of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition. We will discuss selections from Volume 4 of this groundbreaking work. Matt describes the Zohar as "a challenge to the normal workings of consciousness [that] dares one to examine one's assumptions about tradition, God, and self." In addition to The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, Vol. 4, all students should have A Guide to the Zohar by Dr. Arthur Green. Green writes, "The Zohar is the great medieval Jewish compendium of mysticism, myth, and esoteric teaching. It may be considered the highest expression of Jewish literary imagination in the Middle Ages. Surely it is one of the most important bodies of religious text of all times and places." Sponsored and presented by Lehrhaus Judaica. Cost: $175 if registered by Sept 25 $195 after Sept 25
