Rabbi Glazer Teaches The Zohar @ JCCSF

pid_21111This Fall, CBS invites you to learn with Rabbi Glazer at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (JCCSF). In partnership with Lehrhaus Judaica, Rabbi Glazer will teach a nine-session course centered on The Zohar: Pritzker Edition.

The Lehrhaus Philosophy Circle, an engaging adult education series that studies texts from some of the greatest minds in Jewish thought, will explore the Zohar for the 2015-16 academic year. In honor of the completion of Professor Daniel C. Matt’s epic translation and annotation of the first nine volumes of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, they will discuss selections from this groundbreaking work.

Matt describes the Zohar as “a challenge to the normal workings of consciousness [that] dares one to examine one’s assumptions about tradition, G-d, and self.”

In addition to The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, Vol. 3, all students should have A Guide to the Zohar, by Dr. Arthur Green. Green writes, “The Zohar is the great medieval Jewish compendium of mysticism, myth, and esoteric teaching. It may be considered the highest expression of Jewish literary imagination in the Middle Ages. Surely it is one of the most important bodies of religious text of all times and places.”

Working with Lehrhaus Judaica, Professor Matt has chosen the texts as well as the teachers of this exciting new series. CBS is delighted that Rabbi Glazer was tapped to teach the San Francisco course, and we encourage you to take advantage of the learning opportunity!
