THE KABBALISTIC TREE OF LIFE
Ilanot, or tree diagrams, are an essential part of Kabbalah-Jewish mysticism, and have been used in one form or another since Kabbalah’s earliest texts. The Tree of Life is a map of the continuous unfolding process of creation through which, according to the Kabbalists, the infinite divine manifests itself in the world of finite experience.
Through a close examination of part of Sefer Yetzirah – The Book of Formation, possibly the oldest kabbalistic text, we will discover how the Tree is formed, its internal logic, and gain insights for the further study of Kabbalah.
The course is given in English.
This course is for those who wish to develop further their relationship to Jewish texts, having had some experience of Jewish text studies.
Course material is included in the course cost.
