Divine and Human Feelings in the Zohar: The Zohar loves to explore the inner life of God. In these two sessions we will study examples of how God feels, and how our feelings and God’s feelings affect one another. Texts will be presented in the original Aramaic alongside a Hebrew translation and Daniel Matt’s English translation (The Zohar: Pritzker Edition.
Daniel Matt is best known for his 9-volume annotated translation of the Zohar (The Zohar: Pritzker Edition), which has been hailed as “a monumental contribution to the history of Jewish thought.” Among his other books are: The Essential Kabbalah (translated into eight languages), Zohar: Annotated and Explained, and God and the Big Bang: Discovering Harmony between Science and Spirituality (2nd edition, 2016). For 20 years he served as professor at the Graduate Theological Union; he has also taught at Stanford University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Currently he is writing a biography of Elijah the Prophet for the Yale series, Jewish Lives. He also teaches Zohar online (www.sup.org/zohar/course)..
