Torah Study through a Hasidic Lens

May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Monday, repeating until May 27, 2019


We will delve into hidden meanings that lie beneath the simple reading of selected Torah texts through the lenses of Hasidic masters such as The Baal Shem Tov, Degel Machaneh Efraim, Rebbe Nachman, and Sfat Emet. Each text we encounter will offer insight into our psycho-spiritual lives with the aspiration that our own interiority will be illuminated and expanded though its study. We will look at Moses, Miriam, Pharaoh and other biblical characters and locations as archetypes. What do Egypt/Mitzrayim and the Wilderness/Midbar have to do with us? Is God’s Presence found in the text? What do the texts reveal about faith and doubt, belief, our inclinations toward good and evil? The class will utilize music, meditation, hevruta (paired) study and group discussion.
