A Brief Message From Our Rebbe About What We Teach

Shalom Aleichem!

Welcome to The TBST Learning Center, a key part of our teaching ministry. Here you will be able to read online essays, sign up to receive email lectures in .html format, and learn how to attend the live audio classes that I teach throughout the week on PaLTalk. All of these essays, lectures and classes are free of charge and open to the public.

Following the 400-year old esoteric tradition of Sabbatian Kabbalah, which derived from the earlier Kabbalah of Isaac Luria’s circle of students and followers at Safed, and even earlier from the 13th century Kabbalah of the great sages of northern Spain, we shall be teaching about the Transcendent God’s (Ein Sof, Deus Absconditus, Deo Concedente, etc.) descent into the physical world and the human soul’s ascent back to its source in God. We shall draw from the sacred teachings and scriptures of the Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists and other faiths, including the spiritual teachings of American Indians, to show that the wisdom contained therein is universal, the revelation of the One True God that creates and rules all existence. Drawing also on the spirituality of the great psychologist, theologian and avatar Carl G. Jung, we shall be teaching that God In the World (to Whom we refer by using the personal pronoun) is inside each of us, waiting for us to answer His/Her call for a personal relationship with us.

Make no mistake: this is not your celebrity Kabbalah; it is not about personal empowerment or how to get rich. It is about God's love for us, and His/Her desire to bestow good upon us. But it is also about how God suffers from a condition of brokenness, dissociation and internal conflict, and how that is reflected in ourselves, in human events and in history. It is about what we can do to comfort and heal God, the world and ourselves. Your presence, participation and positive energy are important to us. We invite you to join us on this spiritual path and in this great work of tikkun (spiritual repair) by becoming a member of our study community and learning with us.
