Letters of Light
A Mystical Journey Through The Alef-Beis

Aaron L. Raskin

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Text & Thought

A kabbalistic look at the Hebrew letters and the meanings behind the letters. Each letter will be examined in terms of design, gematria, and Hebrew meaning through the lenses of Midrash, Talmud, Kabbalah and Chassidic philosophy. We will illustrate how the letters continue to be a source of creation, reflection, prayer and inspiration in our everyday lives. No prior experience of Hebrew is required.
