Introduction to Jewish Mysticism & Meditation @ Rabbi Barclay's Home
Apr 17 @ 7:30 pm
In honor of the counting of the Omer time between Passover and Shavuot, and by popular request, Rabbi Barclay will be teaching a 6 week series of classes:
 
Introduction to Jewish 
Mysticism & Meditation
Tuesday, April 10 at 7:30pm
 
In this series of classes, you will gain a true understanding and experience of basic Jewish practices of meditation; ancient Jewish understandings regarding the creation and maintenance of the Universe; Kabbalistic theology and where it is hidden in our liturgy and practices; and how Judaism is a tradition that successfully integrates ethic practices and mystical beliefs. In addition, there will be time spent on how to use these teachings to enhance your personal experience of life, achieve more satisfaction, fullness, and joy in every moment; and achieve more excellence in every aspect of your life.
 
This is one of Rabbi Barclay’s favorite topics to teach, and was an integral part of his dissertation and the foundation for his book “Sacred Relationships” (Liturgical Press, 2013).  He has brought these teachings to executives and athletes (including NCAA and professional athletes and teams, as well as Emmy & Academy Award winners), and has taught Jewish mysticism and meditation around the world for over two decades in both large and small settings.
 
Classes will be held on Tuesday nights at 7:30pm beginning on April 10 and continuing through May 16 at the Barclay home:  1941 Tamarack St. in Westlake Village.
 
No prior knowledge is necessary, and as always, there is no financial charge associated with this class.

Shavuot Service & Study @ Rabbi's House
May 19 @ 8:30 pm

Guaranteed to be a life changing evening and one of the most powerful evenings in our Jewish lives, Shavuot is a holiday of studying and celebrating the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai.  Come celebrate with Rabbi Barclay this transcendent event as we utilize Rabbi Barclay’s translation of the ancient text “Tikkun Leil Shavuot” as a guide into the deep awareness of the magnificence of both the Written and Oral Torah.  Traditionally, this evening of study and discussion goes all the way until the dawn; and we will once again immerse ourselves in this tradition (or at least anyone who can make it all the way through the night!).  Bring a dairy dessert to share as it is the tradition to enjoy dairy and desserts throughout the night (and for those who like caffeine we get to enjoy Rabbi Barclay’s famous Cuban Coffee…which makes a cup of espresso seem light!).

Anti-Semitism: A Public Teaching on the History of Hate @ Bogies Westlake Village Inn
Aug 5 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm


Anti-Semitism is more prevalent than at any time since the Holocaust, but why? How did this practice of hatred become so “normalized”, especially in America and Europe? What are the historical and theological roots of Anti-Semitism, and how is it expressed in the 21st century? How is it possible that self proclaimed Nazis and publicly Anti-Semitic individuals can be serious contenders for national public offices?

These questions and more will be discussed in this special lecture given by Rabbi Barclay. The 2010 recipient of the Bnai Zion Distinguished Humanitarian Award, our Rabbi is a former Professor of Theology at Loyola Marymount University, and a nationally recognized academic in Jewish theology and history. He will help us understand the roots of this despicable practice, recognize how it is manifested in 21st century America, and give tools for fighting this evil.

The class will be held in a private room at Bogies at The Westlake Village Inn, and all are welcome to come.
