The joy of learning Zohar lies in following the stream of its mystical interpretations of Torah, and encountering the various elements of this mystical understanding, most especially the idea that the Infinite Unbounded Oneness manifests in ten sefirot – dynamic elements of Divine energy that constantly move between differentiation and union. In the Zohar, Torah is transformed into an ongoing narrative of the inner life of the Divine, inviting us to cultivate a clarity of consciousness in which we experience wholeness and recognize our human purpose to effect balance and union within ourselves and in the world around us.
In this nine-session series, we will be using Volume 9 of the Pritzker edition translation, focusing on the Zohar’s interpretation of Parshat Pinchas from the Book of Numbers. Our learning will be in English and, for those who would like it, I will make available the original Aramaic text. If you intend to participate, please purchase the volume, which is available on Amazon and elsewhere (please don’t purchase the volume for Kindle as the page numbers don’t line up).
No prior Jewish knowledge is necessary. All you need to bring is your curiosity.
