Kabbalah Study at Pico Shul

About this event

Kabbalah is a mystical tradition that was formerly accessible only to a select few, taught by teachers who were hard to find! This powerful tradition of Jewish learning has undergone a revolution in recent years, and Pico Shul's Kabbalah Study group will take you through some of the greatest Kabbalah and Chassidic books, including:

- Sefer Yetzirah

- Tikkunei Zohar

- The Bahir

- The Zohar

- Sefer Tanya

...and many more. We will explore some of the key themes, including the various different Kabbalistic practices and approaches.
