June University Series: THE ‘LAST WORDS’ OF REB ZALMAN

Tuesdays, June 6, 13, 20, 27  7:00 - 8:30 pm at CRC

This summer will mark the third yahrzeit of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, who passed away on July 3, 2014. Reb Zalman, as he was affectionately known, was a creative force in the world of spirituality for many decades. the founder of the Jewish Renewal movement, Reb Zalman combined deep roots in Jewish (especially Hasidic) teachings with a great appreciation for and knowledge of other spiritual traditions (religious and secular) and a technological savviness that gave him insight into where it all might fit into the future. Before he died, Reb Zalman wrote three major works that leave us with ways to incorporate his wisdom and practices into our lives: “Jewish With Feeling (2005), Credo Of A Modern Kabbalist (2006), and Integral Halachah (2007). In this class, we will study and discuss selected 
passages from these books. The texts will be provided and it is not necessary for you to have read or have the books in your 
possession in order to come to class.

All are welcome who want to question and explore.
What is so very amazing about this time?  Who were the main players?  What were the issues?  Who won?  Why did they win?  Who lost?Why did they lose?  What were the issues at the end of BCE that influenced CE?  What took the place of the 2nd Temple?  Who was Jesus? What did he do?  What didn’t he do?  Why?  What was Messiah to the people of the time?  Why did they want one?  Why did they pick the one they picked? What does all or any of this mean to us today
