The very first act of Creation, as recorded in the Torah, was the creation of light. The Sages called this primordial light Ohr Ha-Ganuz, “the Hidden Light.” Just as regular light allows us to see and relate to our surroundings, the Hidden Light dispelled the initial state of darkness, when all was chaos and without form, lacking an underlying unity. This Hidden Light bound matter together with a common purpose. In our learning together, we will explore the Jewish Mystical tradition linking this ancient teaching to our lighting the Menorah, especially at this time. Featuring Rabbi Samuel Klein (Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle) and Beth Huppin (Jewish Family Service).
