Kabbala & Shalom Bayit

Kabbala & Shalom Bayit
As we approach the birthday of Adam and Chava, join Rabbi Avraham Shira and explore one of the most important mitzvot in the Torah, Shalom Bayit, achieving harmony in relationships.  What practical applications can we take away from the story of Adam and Chava which can be used in our own lives?
In this course we will learn about the first wedding, Hashem’s participation in that ceremony, and the difficulty of shalom bayit, from the beginning through the eyes of the Kabbala.  This will include the fall from the seduction of the ‘snake’, the curses on the participants, the restoration through teshuva, the elevation of the feminine and global redemption, the creation of Eve from Adam as a metaphor of the creation of divine speech, and the difficulties of communications between parties with different agendas and the struggle to unite the opposing powers of giving & receiving.
These classes will use a multitude of sources and examples to elucidate these ideas which are of essential importance to our well-being as humans beings.
