Rabbi Avinoam Fraenkel is flying in from Israel to launch his brand new book, Nefesh HaTzimtzum, a translation and commentary on Nefesh HaChaim, including a comprehensive explanation of the key Kabbalistic concept of how an infinite God inhabits a finite world.
Nefesh HaTzimtzum provides the single most comprehensive and accessible presentation of Nefesh HaChaim, a work which has been described as nothing less than a “Shulchan Aruch of Hashkafa,” a formal presentation of how a Jew is to view and philosophically interact with the world. Written by Rabbi Chaim Volozhin, Nefesh HaChaim has resided in almost total obscurity for nearly two centuries due to its deep Kabbalistic subject matter.
Hear Rabbi Fraenkel discuss all kinds of Kabbalistic and philosophical principals, followed by an open Q&A session!
When: Tuesday, December 15 at 8PM
Where: Morry’s Fireplace 9118 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90035
