The Secret Mysticism of the Talmud
Generally, Talmud is the least esoteric sort of Jewish wisdom. The Sages’ care mostly about often very mundane law, like property disputes and kashrut. But Talmud also has its own occult lore. This year in Wednesday night Talmud we will study the second chapter of Tractate Hagigah, which you can purchase on-line, or through our dear friends at West Side Judaica. We’ll read stories of mystical rabbis, and we will supplement the Talmud’s material with forays into genuine Jewish occult lore.
