Joy and Light

Here it is – my first incidental encounter with someone over Kabbalah!

I met this person, Joy, when I was shopping for an English version of the Zohar. You see, the Zohar is the primary Kabbalah work that dates back to earlier than the year 200 C.E.

Written by Rabi Shimon bar Yochai, it is written in Aramaic – a semitic language like Hebrew. The Zohar forms the basis for all the works of Kabbalah. The Kabbalah Centers, founded by Rav Berg, teach English classes in Kabbalah, which makes it easier to understand and follow.

So, shopping for the Zohar in English had me meet this person who has been study Kabbalah at the Kabbalah Center. She has helped me understand s few things. Joy is her name, and she is a student of the Kabbalah teacher Karen Berg.
