Wait – What! The Delightful & Surprising Mythology of Judaism
Judaism has a rich mythology that is unknown to most of us. In a series of 5 classes, Rabbi Lotker will introduce the enormous range of classic texts (including Torah, Bible, Talmud, Midrash, Kabbalistic, medieval folklore, and Hasidic) that contribute to this eye-opening treasure. Subjects will include myths of Angels, the Garden of Eden, the Messiah, Hell, the Angel of Death, Lilith and the Shekinah – the bride of God. Much of the material will be drawn from Howard Schwartz’s Tree of Souls: the Mythology of Judaism.
The virtual class will take place on 5 consecutive Tuesday evenings, Feb. 2, 9, 16, 23 and March 2 from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
