History and Philosophy of Kaballah 01

This is the first in a series of shiurim from Rabbi Triebitz on the history of Kaballah, using the Tanya (shaar hayichud ve-ha-emunah) as the springboard to go forward and backward in history. This is possibly the most exciting series of shiurim he has ever given.

Here are the sources for the shiur. I’m not going to write a summary because I can’t do it justice, but the main topic is G-d’s immanence in the world through the letters of the Torah.
