Daniel Matt on Shedding Light on the Zohar

  • Jewish Community Library 1835 Ellis Street San Francisco, CA 94115 (map)

Free admission with free garage parking on Pierce Street between Ellis and Eddy streets.

In this session offered by Lehrhaus Judaica, we will explore selections from the Zohar appropriate to the end of Elul and before the High Holidays. Our guide through this material is Professor Daniel C. Matt whose epic translation and annotation of the first nine volumes of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition offers windows into this mystical teaching. 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.” This session will provide students with the background to join one of Lehrhaus Judaica's ongoing Philosophy Circle cohorts. Philosophy Circle meets nine times from October through May. Register here.
