Broken Vessels, Hidden Sparks

David Ingber

Sunday 9:15 PM–10:30 PM Columbia Canceled, sorry

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Text & Thought

The Mystical Philosophy of Isaac Luria, known as the Ari, completely revolutionized the Jewish world in the latter part of the 16th Century. The mystical landscape was forever changed by his unique system which became the accepted mystical worldview of Jewish mystics to this day! This class will look at how the Ari's system evolved in the ensuing centuries as teachers explored the meaning and ramifications of this ideas. Thinkers like Moshe Luzzatto, Elijah of Vilna, the Baal Shem Tov and Rabbi Kook have all looked to the Ari as source and inspiration. We will study Lurianic Kabbalah as it is refracted through the centuries in the thought of these great masters. No prior background necessary, just an open heart and mind.
