Online Zohar Course
Posted on Thursday, December 27, 2018 by Daniel Matt
As many of you know, several years ago I completed my annotated translation of the Zohar (The Zohar: Pritzker Edition). Now I am starting to teach Zohar online. Beginning January 16, 2019 (through February 20), I am offering a 6-session course on Wednesday evenings, from 6 pm – 7:15 pm, Pacific time, via Zoom. After this initial course, we will continue with additional courses.
We will be exploring Volume 1 of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition. The course is open to anyone who is interested in exploring Zohar. There is no requirement for fluency in Hebrew or Aramaic or any extensive background in Jewish sources. I will at times refer to the original Aramaic text, but the course is intended primarily for those have not yet studied Zohar extensively or even at all.
Video recordings will be available to anyone who has registered. The cost of the course is on a sliding scale from $150 – $250. For further information, please visit my Facebook page here and look at the top post or email me here.
I look forward to studying with some of you soon. Please share this announcement with anyone who might be interested.
