    An Introduction to Jewish Mystical Thought - Kabbalah 101
    Wednesday, Feb 8th 7:30p to 10:00p
    Jewish mysticism is mysterious to many. We know it exists, but what is it? Kabbalah attempts to better understand the essence of God and how we as humans can relate to Ein Sof - the One who is without end. We’ll examine some of these core ideas and the ways in which they play a role in contemporary Jewish life.
