Diller Lecture: Neo-Hasidism and Neo-Kabbalah – Privatised Uses of Traditional Lore

January 30, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Tomer Persico

To what measure does contemporary popular Kabbalah display an extension of traditional Kabbalah? How much does Neo-Hasidism preserve the spirit of Hasidism? With an abundance of Kabbalistic and Hasidic movements and practices offered through Jewish Contemporary Spirituality, we shall try to discern the process through which major tenets from the Jewish mystical tradition go through modern interpretation, and examine the social forces shaping such interpretation, as well as the inherent tension it presents the Halakha.
