This month we will be having a guest teacher for Adult Ed! Geoffrey Dennis is rabbi of Congregation Kol Ami in Flower Mound, TX. He is a popular professor in Rabbinics at the University of North Texas, where he teaches Kabbalah, Biblical Literature, and the History of Messianism. He received his M.HL and was ordained at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. He also has degrees in Education and Nursing. Prior to his ordination, Rabbi Dennis was a registered nurse working in cardiac and hospice. His articles have appeared in The Journal of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, The Journal of, Pa Consciousness, Parabola, and The Journal of Ritual Studies. His essays have the CCAR books, The Sacred Encounter, Lights in the Forest, A Life of Meaning, and Inscribed: Encounters with the Ten Commandments. He is the author of two books on folklore and mysticism, The Encyclopedia of Myth, Magic, and Mysticism, and Seder ha-Bahir: Selections from the Book of Brilliance. The EJMMM was selected as a runner up in the 2007 National Jewish Book Award. He is married to Robin and has two sons, Avram and Micah. Rabbi Dennis specializes in Jewish mysticism, history, folklore, and ritual studies. He will be Zooming in to teach us about Jewish mysticism through three key eras/perspectives: Apocalypse/Hechalot; Classic Kabbalah (Bahir/Zohar); and Lurianic Kabbalah. Due to the time difference, these three sessions will be later than our typical Adult Ed classes, but I promise you won't want to miss them!
