Utilizing the weekly Parsha writings of Rabbi Avraham Brandwein of Jerusalem, Israel, translated and taught by Rabbi Noah Shavrick of Baltimore, MD., USA the Study Group examines the weekly Torah portion from a Kabbalistic perspective. Observing the world within us and around us though a system of traditional correspondences described in the Tree of Life (Etz Chayim), makes it possible to experience the living quality of Torah as it applies in our lives today.
History of the Study GroupThe Study Group grew out of the A-Z Kabbalah Forum which was founded in 2002 by Rabbi Brandwein and Zohara Hieronimus of Maryland. The Forum is held several times each year and focuses on the teachings of Yehuda Leib Ashlag, z"l who translated the Zohar into Hebrew from the original Aramaic and authored the "Sulam," a commentary on the Zohar which earned him the title "Ba'al HaSulam." All programs are taught by Rav Brandwein. Rav Brandwein was ordained as a Rabbi by G'dolim representing the entire Orthodox community in Israel. He Founded the Kol Yehuda Yeshiva in Jerusalem in 1985. A widely respected scholar, Rav Brandwein has edited more than twenty volumes of classical Kabbalistic texts.
Parsha TextsEach week’s Parsha is delivered via email and is then studied in a group setting with open discussion, question and answer throughout the evening.
Study Group FocusA wide range of professionals meet to examine not only the biblical events described in the Torah, but the inner meaning in each event. How do we address the modern world with wisdom? How can we come to live with every aspect of life as a gift, a blessing from G d? Why is giving to others selflessly so vital to our relationship with G d? These and numerous other issues are addressed with a focus on making the Torah and specific Kabbalistic texts a practical tool for daily living.
