Ma’avor Yabok Study Group with Rabbi Steve Moss

This is a continuation of the discussions that arose from the sessions at our June 2020 conference, in which Rabbi Moss taught about Kabbalah and the system of the Sefirot and how they operate in our lives. This study and discussion group continues to examine translations of selected chapters from Ma’avor Yabbok, in particular those that speak to the rituals of Taharah and vidui, with consideration of the kabbalistic view of the neshamah, afterlife, and reincarnation.

Rabbi Steven Moss

Rabbi Dr. Steven Moss recently retired from his congregation on Long Island where he served for 47 years. He has been a student of Kabbalah and spirituality for much of his life. He has been working on a translation of the classic Jewish text on death and dying, Maavor Yabok, since his rabbinic thesis, The Attitude Toward Sickness, Dying and Death As Expressed in the Liturgical Works Maavor Yabok and Sefer Hahayiim.
