These classes will focus on The Zohar is the central document of the Jewish mystical tradition. It is traditionally ascribed to Rabbi Simeon bar Yohai, a sage of the second century CE, but it was not revealed in writing until the Spanish Rabbi Moshe de Leon transcribed it in the thirteenth century. In this series, we will review the significance of the Zohar, both traditionally and for modern Judaism, and we will examine selected passages from the Zohar, especially those Zoharic passages that have found their way into the Siddur (prayer book).
