Introduction to the Zohar
Beginning January 16, 2019 (through February 20), Kabbalah scholar and professor at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, Daniel C. Matt will offer a 6-session course on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:15 pm, (West Coast time) on the subject of the Zohar, via Zoom. The course will likely continue after these initial six sessions.
The course will explore Volume 1 of The Zohar: Prizker Edition. Participants should obtain this volume and are encouraged to read Arthur Green’s introduction before the first session.
Cost of the course is on a sliding scale from $150 – $250. Those interested can register by paying for the course on PayPal. If you have a PayPal account, you can pay by entering my Daniel’s email address (danielmattATsbcglobal.net), then selecting “Sending to a friend” (not “Paying for an item or service”). Once you have paid, Daniel will send you a link to the first class (the first Zoom meeting), scheduled for January 16.
If you do not have a PayPal account, you can join via PayPal. If you do not wish to join, you can email Daniel, and provide him with your email address and he will send you a request for payment via PayPal.

At Emanu-El, we are an active community of lifelong Jewish learners – in the endless pursuit of spiritual growth and exploration. As Jews, we are compelled to question and debate. These conversations energize us as we gain new perspectives and challenge our own long-held beliefs. Our shared desire for knowledge and for community enriches us as individuals and bonds us as a congregation.
Emanu-El thrives when we are learning together. We hope that you will find time on your calendar and in your mind to join us on a thought-provoking and powerful Jewish journey.
