About This Course

Kabbalist Rav Yehuda Ashlag was arguably the most profound mystic and spiritual teacher of the 20th Century. Among his many gifts was his ability to take complex concepts and decipher them in a systematic fashion, distilling them down to their very essence. His writings are so pithy that they are studied repeatedly for the deep insights they offer into human nature and the spiritual realm. Join Senior Instructor Meir Yeshurun for these lessons on Rav Ashlag's life and essential teachings.
