Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi @ HaMakom (St Bede's) Santa Fe & SSDS Abq
@ Sun 29 January 2012 @ 4:00 pm
Reb Zalman is one of the most important Jewish scholars today, and he draws from his studies with Rabbi Schneerson (the Rebbe) of Chabad as well as from the Brastlav movement (Rabbi Nahman of Breslav) to describe his understanding of Judaism and mysticism.
Reb Zalman, the teacher, and Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, the singer, have been the twin pillars of the twentieth (and twenty-first) century movements that brought Hasidic Judaism to mainstream America.
They were both sent out as young emissaries by the Lubavitcher Rebbe in the 60s to connect with young Jews who were exploring other forms of spirituality.
What It Is: Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi (known as Reb Zalman to his students and followers), a leading scholar of Kabbalah and founder of the Jewish Renewal movement will do a live, interactive video conference on Jewish mysticism:
Sunday, January 29, 2012
HaMakom at St. Bede’s
(1601 South St Francis)
Reb Zalman will discuss his most recent teachings from the books A Hidden Light: Stories and Teachings of Early HaBaD and Bratzlav Hasidism and All Breathing Life Adores Your Name: the Interface between Prayer and Poetry.
Both books were published by the Santa Fe publisher, Gaon Books.
This is an unusual opportunity to interact with Reb Zalman in New Mexico, since he travels infrequently. This talk is sponsored by HaMakom, the Place for passionate and progressive Judaism (the Jewish Renewal congregation in Santa Fe) and Gaon Institute.
Info: Seating @ St Bede's is limited. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (505) 920-7771.
