The Zohar is the great compendium of Jewish mysticism, myth, and esoteric teaching, and is considered one of the most important religious texts of all time. The Zohar is a challenge to the normal workings of consciousness that dares us to examine our assumptions about tradition, God, and self.

To experience the Zohar’s spiritual mysteries, you must engage the text and follow the words to what lies beyond and within. To receive its meaning, open the gates of imagination.

Join this Bay Area–wide exploration of the Zohar, taught at the PJCC by Rabbi Lavey Derby, Director of Jewish Life. No prior Jewish knowledge is necessary. All you need to bring is your curiosity.
