Forms divide, essence unites.
Religion is a psychological archetype.
Religious lessons enlighten us about the collective psychology of all humanity.

  Religion is thus more about man than it is about God, and that is the way God wants it to be. 

Rational explanations of deeply spiritual, mystical topics.
 In-depth classes and courses in the following fields:
Bible, Orthodox Judaism, Kabbalah, & Meditation
(We also cover many other topics, from many other fields)
All of our courses are geared towards
removing fundamentalism, extremism, superstitions, and prejudice from religion.

Welcome to our KosherTorah School

Shalom, Welcome, Bienvenidos!

Special Course Schedule - Summer 2017



Talmud Bavli - Tractate Berakhot, Chapter Four (Tefilat HaShahar)

All through the summer, we will take a break from Kabbalah/mysticism and focus instead on down-to-earth everyday Halakha (Torah practices).

We will be learning the practices of the Shema Yisrael prayer and the Amidah.  This course will introduce and teach the Talmud in a classical Sephardic way which focuses on the evolution of Halakha over the many centuries.  This path also delves deeply into the Talmudic stories (Agadot), not just explaining them, but also explaining why they are there in the first place.  This class is open to all students.



Course Schedule - Spring and Fall 2017



Otrot Hayim - The Treasury of Life

Rabbi Hayim Vital's introductory text to the Lurianic system of Theoretical Kabbalah. 

The order of psychological universe.

Unlike others who teach this material superficially as if the matters herein describe the external world, we teach the text correctly as how these matters are psychological and reveal the inner developments and workings of human consciousness.  This course is an exploration of our inner selves, with focus on self-awareness.





        The Biblical Book of Isaiah

        The text is taught within its historical and psychological context.  Only then do we

        augment with commentaries from classical, and even mystical sources.  When relevant,

        references will also be made to Christian interpretations.






Sefer Yetzirah - the Book of Formation

The Mysterious Classic.  We will be exploring this text from the points of view of pre-Zoharic, and post-Zoharic literature.  The two perspectives, we will see, are very different from one another.  We will also be pacing great emphasis on the practical meditative usage of the teachings within the text.
