Zohar Off the Page - A Visual and Hands-On Exploration
When you enter the world of the Zohar, as Daniel Matt teaches, you must “engage the text and join the search for meaning. Follow the words to what lies beyond and within; open the gates of imagination.” In this four-part series, you will be given the tools and opportunity to do just that through the arts. You only need to bring your imagination and good will.
Four Sessions, Mondays 7:00-8:30 pm, March 4, March 11, March 25, April 8

Yosef Rosen is an historian and teacher of Jewish creativity. His classes weave together the imaginative and social dimensions of Jewish creative genres—Kabbalah, Talmud, philosophy, and poetry—and invite students to discover their own genres of intellectual creativity. He is currently a Jewish Studies teacher at JCHS of the Bay. He has a PhD in Jewish Studies from UC Berkeley, where he completed a dissertation on representations of spiritual community in the Zohar. Before moving to the Bay seven years ago, Yosef spent many years in traditional and innovative yeshivot in both Israel and America. In his spare time he wanders the woodlands of Northern California and celebrates the hillsides of the Bay on his bike.
