Rav Ellen Roth studied Kabbalah and will share an overview of Kabbalah of the past and present.


Lecture highlights include:

What is kabbalah all about? It is a spiritual practice inextricably integrated into Jewish law, ritual, prayer, and study.

 An opportunity to take a closer look at Jewish mystical brief history, including key concepts of Tikkun, receiving, and everything of the best.

 The ten fundamental forces that sustain the world, the four worlds the Kabbalists live in simultaneously, the three daily tasks of the Kabbalist, and 39 different ways not to work on the Sabbath, and how to imagine an unimaginable God while praying.

 Plus recognizing the power of magic and language. How to do [and undo] things with words.

The Kabbalah Life — activities, celebrations, and rituals.

 The Essential Skills of the Kabbalist — a study of the holy books of Kabbalah, recitation of daily prayers, and a view of God known to believers as the Infinite One.

 You will learn more about current practitioners participating in Tikkun Olam and the journey of the human soul. It will also include a brief historical sound bite on — interesting lists of people, places, and myths related to Kabbalah.

 Why do we all celebrate our birthdays annually?
