A Light on New Beginnings with Rabbah Dr. Mira Neshama Weil
Hosted By: Applied Jewish Spirituality
Together, we will read Genesis as never before, through the luminously beautiful commentary of the Me’or Enayim (Light of the Eyes), an early Chasidic classic by R’ Menachem Nachum of Chernobyl.
R’ Menechem (1730-1797) was a close friend and student of the Ba’al Shem Tov, and his commentary offers us an enlightening path for opening the Torah anew, and renewing our lives, in this new year of 5783.
Together, we will learn to see Genesis, and ourselves, with new eyes. We will become acquainted with Chasidic thinking and the various levels of Torah reading at play in mystical commentaries. We will explore the text as a resource for contemplative wisdom and practical ethics that we can apply in our everyday lives.
All texts are provided with clear translations, and no prior knowledge or experience with the subject matter is necessary. This class is open to novices and advanced learners of all backgrounds and orientations.
