Instructor: Mary Jane Suzman
During the 18th and 19th centuries, Hasidic masters spread Jewish mysticism throughout the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe. In this discussion class, we will first take a brief look at the main themes of that Hasidic tradition. Then we will proceed to study texts from modern sages who inherited and enlarged that mystic tradition for modern times. Our studies will include the work of Hillel Zeitlin, Abraham Isaac Kook, Kalonymos Shapira (writing from the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust), Abraham Joshua Heschel, Arthur Green and some beautiful stories from Mitchell Chefitz. Always we will try to ask ourselves and each other what meaning these teachings might have for us. Can we access the visions in such a way that they enrich the way we see the world and act in it?
