Preparing for Kallah II: A Study of Radical Judaism
Sunday, March 9 at 10 a.m.
As we continue our study of Radical Judaism, we will focus on the sacred language and texts of Torah. What do we mean by "Torah?" How might we discover its hidden meanings? And how can we understand its calls for religious response? Join Rabbi Berman for the second class of an exploration of Radical Judaism.
Kallah with Rabbi Art Green
Professor and Rabbi Arthur Green is the Rector of the Hebrew College Rabbinical School. He is one of the preeminent scholars of Kabbalah and Hasidism, and one of the most important Jewish theologians of our day. He is both a spiritual seeker and a critical scholar. In Radical Judaism he argues that a neo-mystical perspective can help us to rethink such concepts as God, the origins and meaning of existence, human nature and revelation to construct a new Judaism for the 21st century. Join us for a series of talks throughout this special weekend by Rabbi Green sharing the core theological questions raised in the book and his personal spiritual and theological path.
