Men’s Tanya and Gemara Shiur
Enrich Your Soul & Mind with a touch of Kabbalah with Rabbi Hillel Gruber.
Sundays 11:30am – 12:00 pm for men
Written by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the book of Tanya is the fundamental, classic work of Chabad Chasidic philosophy. More importantly, it offers guidance for every facet of day-to-day life. While based on the kabbalistic works of the Zohar, writings of Rabbi Isaac Luria (Arizal), Baal Shem Tov, Maharal of Prague and others – its unique approach of distilling the cryptic messages of mysticism has won it acclaim as a most practical book of spirituality for layman and scholar alike.
This class will lead the student through every paragraph and page, illuminating the mystical, often allusive, Talmudic, Kabbalistic, and Scriptural verses and concepts. It will be fascinating for expert and novice alike and no prior background knowledge is necessary.
