COURSE A*

JEWISH HISTORY
A SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION TAKES ROOT

By the end of the 18th century the Chassidic movement had taken the Jewish world of Eastern Europe by storm. Its approach to Judaism and life in general had captured the imagination of Jews far and wide. At the same time however, it engendered a strong opposition and was challenged from within and without, leading to a raging conflict that divided the Jewish world. Rabbi Schneur Zalman, the founder of the Chabad Chassidic movement found himself at the eye of the storm. In this course you will learn how he managed to weather the storm and turned the movement into a force that has not weakened to this very day.

COURSE B*

THE SOUL: AN OPERATOR'S MANUAL

Getting To Know Your Other Half

The human being is a composite of body and soul; the marriage of matter and spirit.  We know a lot about the body and its functions, we are familiar with the biological and psychological processes that operate the body's systems. Our other half, the soul, however, is a mystery. What is it? How does it function? What are its needs and desires? Kabbalah, the ancient Jewish tradition of Mysticism, solves some of these mysteries. Kabbalah opens us to the world of soul, guiding us through its mysterious pathways and providing us with strategies to navigate the conflicts that arise in this existential marriage.
