What's Included

One Session: Wednesday November 23 with Justin Beck Justin C. Beck was Marketing Director of Apple Inc., Australia, when a personal tragedy caused him to re-think the meaning of “success” in life. Justin’s spiritual quest impelled him to relinquish the corporate fast-track; and ultimately, it led him to the Kabbalah. Today Justin is a noted scholar and lecturer on the supernatural side of Judaism. His book, about to be released, is entitled, "Kabbalah Now.” Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus has served Congregation Or-Shalom as its spiritual leader for 34 years. In this ILR class, he will interview Justin C. Beck as they explore an aspect of Judaism that has intrigued so many these days: Why is “666” an ominous number? Why do so many people wear a red-bracelet (including Madonna and Ashton Kutcher)? Was this world meant to last forever? Was Jesus a Kabbalist? Why are most comic book super-heroes "Jewish”? COME & LEARN!!
