Unlocking the Secrets of Jewish Mysticism with Danny Matt

Tuesdays, August 8, 22, and 29

For centuries, the wisdom of Kabbalah, Jewish Mysticism, was held by the rare few who dedicated their lives to exploring the ancient texts. Access for others was virtually impossible. In the year 1997, renowned Kabbalah scholar Daniel Matt set out to translate and interpret the entire Zohar – the core Jewish mystical text – for the modern reader. His journey lasted 18 years: one page a day.

The Urban Adamah community is fortunate to have Danny teach three special classes during the month of August. They will delve into some of the central themes of the Zohar, each with profound implications for our lives and the future of civilization. Topics include: God, the material world, and the Jewish spiritual path. No Hebrew skills necessary. No previous Kabbalah learning necessary. The classes are designed to build on each other but can be also taken individually.
