Melila Hellner-Eshed is one of the leading teachers of Judaism in the world today. A native of Jerusalem, Dr. Hellner-Eshed teaches Zohar and Jewish mysticism at the Hebrew University and is a research fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute, where among her many projects she leads an annual seminar for rabbinical students from around the world. A pioneer in the Israeli renaissance of the creative study of Jewish texts, Dr. Hellner-Eshed has also been teaching and working for decades with Jewish communities in North America, Europe and the former Soviet Union. A riveting presenter and an expert in Jewish mysticism, Dr. Hellner-Eshed combines an encyclopedic knowledge of classic Jewish texts with the heart of an artist and the perspective of a citizen of the world. Like all great teachers, Melila guides us to where the ancient tradition and our own lives intersect, and makes us more aware and alive in the process.
Come awaken your spirit for the New Year, through interactive text study, lecture, song, creative writing, reflection and deep sharing. Dont miss this rare opportunity to study with a world-class scholar in an intimate setting right here in Woodstock!
Our Friday evening and Saturday morning activities will be open, free of charge, to the entire community. Beginning with Shabbat lunch on Saturday and continuing through Sunday lunch, Dr. Hellner-Eshed will lead a workshop that requires participants to register in advance and pay a tuition fee.
