Inner Oral Tradition of the Torah
Print this Page
An examination of the mystical contemplative tradition of Judaism through a demonstration
of its approach to Torah texts. The emphasis in the course is on the development and
expression of critical thinking and intuition. Good questions are a priority over
good answers. Age-old Chassidic methodologies will be used toward this end. Dramatization
of stories will be utilized to access the students' emotions and intuitive powers.
Exposure to practices like shofar and succah will give the students a firsthand experience
of Jewish contemplative practice. Offered alternate years. Cross-listed as REL676.
