Over my time at Dartmouth, Chabad has gone beyond simply enriching my pride and knowledge of Judaism. Chabad has become our second home, where Jewish students of all backgrounds can always feel comfortable and connected with Judaism.
6 Week Course on Jewish Mysticism
Soul Maps:a six week course on Jewish Mysticism
Soul Maps uses Jewish text to explore the relationship between your soul, mind, and everyday actions. This is a really cool and unique opportunity to examine religious texts once a week with friends and Rabbi Gray. No grades, no pressure, just discussion for the sake of it! (Awesome right?) It’s a great way to meet other Jews on campus and engage in discussions that you've always wanted to have but could never find the right time or place for.
Everyone is welcome and no prior Jewish education is needed!
Classes will meet once a week on Thursdays from 6-8, starting Thursday Sept 20-Nov 1
The class will help you…
Explore the source of guilt, conflict, and confusion, and find useful strategies for developing joy, purpose, and direction in everyday life
Address the occasional inner conflict between heart and mind
Use the Tanya (Jewish text) to study the struggle between good and evil within the human soul
Engage in personal change and reach a greater state of spiritual sensitivity and personal enlightenment
Establish relationships with other Jews on campus and get to know Rabbi Gray
Spaces are limited, so if you are interested sign by emailing Chabad@dartmouth.edu or if you have any questions.
If you’d like to take the class but are busy this term, you can always take it in the winter. It’s really not that big a commitment and will be very rewarding!
