Spring Holidays

Celebrate Purim @ Bet Alef: The Ultimate Kabbalistic Holiday


Thursday, February 25, 7-9 PM

Online via Zoom

Jewish tradition has it that when Messiah finally arrives, all the holidays will be abrogated except for one: Purim. Why? What lies beneath the surface of a holiday of seeming debauchery and carnival, that would lead our sages to proclaim that Purim–of all our many holidays–is of such towering spiritual heights that even in messianic times we will still celebrate it? The answer will lead us deep down the path of Kabbalah, to bring light to the most incredible mystical discoveries of this most misunderstood holiday.

Come spelunking with Rabbi Olivier, Purim Eve, Thursday Feb. 25th from 7 to 9PM. (BYO groggers and Hamantaschen!)

We will be using the text of the Book of Esther that you can find here on Sefaria. You are welcome to familiarize yourself with this short biblical story ahead of the workshop. Note that if you click on any verse on Sefaria, a column will pop open in your browser offering you many commentaries to the text. Make sure to take advantage of it.
