Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism

Kabbalah ("mysticism") is the body of esoteric teachings of Judaism and Jewish mystical literature, particularly from the 12th century onward. The kabbalah draws on early rabbinic mystical tradition about the divine chariot ("maaseh Merkavah") and the mysteries of creation ("maaseh bereshit"). It is concerned with doctrines about God and creation, the problem of evil, the soul, and the mystic way.  This course will discuss the key literature as well as its renewed popularity in pop culture. Instructor: Marden Paru; $60.
