Jewish Mysticism: Tracing the History of Kabbalah (Melton Course)

A course of the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Jewish Mysticism: Tracing the History of Kabbalah

Getting beyond Madonna, red strings, and hocus pocus, this study provides a deep, accurate, and intellectually honest understanding of the historical backdrop that led to the birth of an esoteric Jewish tradition, alongside the societal and cultural changes that shaped and reshaped that tradition throughout the centuries, until this very day.
Jewish Mysticism: Tracing the History of Kabbalah offers students the framework to understand the development of Jewish mysticism while utilizing the primary texts that have been central to that tradition.
While grounded in scholarship, each class will include discussions that address the timeless mysteries of human existence and many of life’s eternal, universal questions.
