Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon (Welcome to the Zohar and Sessions I and II)
Rabbi Sanford Seltzer (Sessions III, IV, and V)
The Zohar is the great medieval compendium of mysticism, myth, and esoteric teaching. One of the most important bodies of religious texts of all times and places, it is also a lush literary celebration of love, expressed in sensuous religious language. The Zohar's secret universe serves as the basis of Kabbalistic faith and is, at heart, a work of sacred fantasy.
This remarkable work is explored using the new translation by Danny Matt, which enables even novice students of the Kabbalah to approach and understand the pivotal text. In a guided exploration of this seminal work of mysticism, Rabbi Cohon helps open the "locked garden" of the Zohar in an interactive discussion class using both intellectual and meditation techniques.
