    Study the Zohar

    7/23 @7pm

    Join Rabbi Ben as he leads us on a exploration of the Zohar, the 13th century kabbalistic text which brought to the world a revolution in theology and philosophy. We will be studying from the new translation by Daniel Matt (the Pritzker Edition), which will aid us on our journey. Both people who are new to Kabbalah, and people who have had extensive study are sure to learn a lot!

Please join us for a hike as we celebrate Shabbat services on Hewlett Gulch in scenic Poudre Canyon.
