Free Webinar: Master and Disciple-Hasidic Wisdom and the Student-Teacher Relationship
November 12 from 4-5 p.m.
Instructor: Rabbi Ariel Mayse
The sacred bond between teachers and their students lies at the heart of Jewish mysticism. This free Shoolman Graduate School of Jewish Education webinar will explore some core Hasidic teachings on the soulful encounter between the master and disciple. Drawing upon both Hasidic homilies and stories, we will examine different models of student-teacher relationship in the Hasidic legacy with an eye to the great power, sensitivity and potential dangers of this bond. We will also highlight the relevance of these Hasidic teachings for our contemporary lives as students and teachers alike. Instructor: Rabbi Ariel Mayse, Director of Jewish Studies, Hebrew College.
