Spring 2014 Classes with Rabbi Natan: Register Now!

Hassidic Texts and Spiritual Practice: An Online Course

Mondays, 7:30-9:30pm,
Jan. 20 through May 5, 2014
Tuition: $550* for Organic Torah students (Aleph students register through Aleph) 

A text-based introduction to Hasidism in its early stages, this course will explore the spiritual world of the early Hassidic Rebbes, and its relevance for us today. We will be doing a lot of the readings from Arthur Green’s new book, Speaking Torah: Spiritual Teachings from Around the Maggid’s Table.  We will also use Or Rose and Ebn Leader’s collection of spiritual practices, God in All Moments: Mystical and Spiritual Wisdom from Hasidic Masters. We will work as much as possible from the Hebrew sources and have English translation available when needed. We will include, as much as possible, a teaching on the weekly parshah but we won’t be limited to the parsha, as we will select some from gems of wisdom from the Hassidic Masters wherever they appear. We will focus on their applicability to our own spiritual practice.

Mishnah and Gemara: Tractate Megillah (In Person or Online)

Wednesdays, 9:15-10:45am,
at Temple Beth Zion in Brookline (or anywhere, anytime, online).
Jan. 22 through Apr. 30, 2014 (12 sessions)
Tuition: $495* in person / $220* for audio recordings and Google site participation.

We will study together the amazing patterns and hidden meanings in the Mishnah -Tractate Megillah, with regular excursions into the Gemara’s comments on the Mishnah. This tractate speaks about the reading of the Megillah, but between the lines it deals with much more, including people and God, body and community, land and diaspora. Join us to see how the living, organic nature of Jewish texts extends even into the legal material of the Mishnah and Talmud.
