Hassidut and Kabbala for your Shabbat Table – from The Women’s Bet Midrash

9 am to 10:15 am

All welcome!

Zohar Unzipped: (5 classes)

Begins March 1

Dr. Biti Roi

What’s the source of the Zohar’s mystic fascination? Why is it central to so many Jewish figures, from the Ari and the Vilna Gaon to Rav Kook? And how does it underpin and influence the deepest roots of Chassidut? These classes will unzip the Zohar’s mystique, exploring its underlying concepts, beliefs and ideas.

Dr. Biti Roi is a lecturer in Kabbala and Chassidut at Machon Schechter and at Zohar Hai (connected to Rav Frumin’s legacy) and a Shalom Hartman Institute research fellow.
