This self-paced online class explores the magic, healing practices, and arts of ancient and diasporic Judaism. Patriarchy has long obscured much of ancient and old Jewish rites associated with the occult and magic of the everyday. A thread of resistance has always woven through, sometimes deep below, sometimes for all to see, masked in secreted prayer or baked into bread.
In this introduction class we cover water rites and mikveh, amulets, mirror magic, Jewish time and the moon, incantation bowls, Sefer Yetzirah (the first recorded written text of Jewish mysticism that some of the kabbalah is based/inspired by), magical practices working with plants and animals in Judaism, Jewish astrology, angels and demons.
This is an introductory class and covers these very deep topics with brevity. It’s perfect if you are new to learning about the magic and mysticism of earth-based feminist Judaism.
This class is available to you regardless of spiritual background. Those with both beginner and advanced knowledge, people interested in converting to Judaism, curious about Judaism, and more are encouraged to participate in a non-Zionist space. No knowledge of Judaism or Hebrew necessary.
