In this segment of the series “Intro to Kabbalah,” Rabbi Yossi Paltiel examines the life and personality of the Arizal – Rabbi Yitzchak Luria Ashkenazi, father of Lurianic Kabbalah.
The Arizal is the famed student of Rabbi Moshe Cordovero, and upon the death of his teacher, he undisputedly filled the position as head of the Kabbalists. Much of the Kabbalah and Chassidut studied today are inspired by the Arizal’s work.
In this enlightening clip, Rabbi Yossi Paltiel, who has dedicated his life to studying and promulgating chassidic teachings, describes this spiritual giant and the many contributions he made, including the novel concept of Tzimtzum – the implementation by G-d to contract His light to allow our world to be born.
