Zohar Circle – Berkeley – Fall 2020

Wednesday, September 23, 2020 thru Wednesday, February 3, 2021
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
See session list below for specific session times and locations.
Educator: Yosef Rosen, Ph.D.

Fantasies of Companionship and Connection: Zohar Leviticus, Pritzker Vol. VII

During these months of isolation, the Zohar’s legends of devotional community and friendship offer us a poignant model of what we miss. The Zohar’s spirituality is thoroughly social; to connect to the divine begins by connecting to one’s friends and teachers. Together on-line, we will try to live this world-view and create a circle of learning and community. This year we will study the Zohar on Leviticus (Pritzker Edition, Vol. VII), a section rich with narratives and theologies of relationship. Along the way, we will encounter an array of themes—the differences between companions and lovers, the letters of God’s names, Lilith, Sukkot, holy wine, the fragrances of faith, erotic rain, and the theological value of companionship.
