Observe a class:
Second Temple and Early Rabbinic Periods at 1:45 PM (optional)
The scheduled topic for Sunday, April 18th is whether or when there was in fact “a parting of the ways”, creating a clear distinction between the two “religions.” The whole notion of something labelled “religion” emerges as part of these developments for it is quite unclear whether Jews prior to the fourth century CE had a notion of “religion” and that being a member of the people of Israel entailed having a “religion.”
2:00 – 3:30 PM PT
Observe a class:
Visionary Traditions at 4:00 PM (optional)
The topic of the session on the 18th is the Patach Eliyahu prayer (“Elijah the Prophet opened and said…”). This Zohar prayer describes the Ten Sephirot, the Tree of Life, and the three columns. The Sephirot are the energy emanations that we experience HaShem’s action in the world. The prayer ends with a promise of redemption. The Holy One blessed be He, cannot be at rest as long as Israel is in exile. He is bound to redeem us.
