Preparing for Shavuot with the Zohar


The Zohar, the heart of Kabbalah, is the source of the Tikkun Leil Shavuot, the all-night study session before we receive the Torah on Shavuot. In preparation for understanding what this session was actually about, we’ll do a brief introduction to Zohar and the Sefirot (the inner aspects of the Divine) and then examine a poetic passage (in English) describing how human religious insights impact God(!). Links to access the texts that we will use in the learning session will be emailed before the class begins. Questions? Email Mitch Marcus (
