Kaballah Course Series One Concludes

Bris Avrohom of Fair Lawn just concluded a brand new six week Kaballah course with great attendance and interest.

The course, entitled The Identity and Journey of Your Soul and led by Rabbi Mendel Zaltzman, discussed how being a living human is to have a soul - actually two of them. The class encompassed the deep intellectual understanding of each soul and practical discussion on how to use the nature of each soul to maximize potential in life such as one’s love life, child rearing, and peace of mind.

The Kaballah course had more than twenty adults attending the series, and was viewed as a wonderful new addition to the Bris Avrohom of Fair Lawn calendar.

The second series of the Kaballah course will focus on the soul of Jewish observances as a model for educating our children.  The course will begin on January 10, 2017 and will run on Tuesday evenings at 8:00 pm for four weeks.  The course is open to the public, with registration, and is $36 per person for all four weeks.
