About this Class
The essence of divinity is discovered within our own selves as the love of G-d that transcends all human faculties of intellect and emotion.
In this class we will continue to apply the father/son mashal (metaphor) to Avodah (service of Hashem). The goal is to discover the essence of Divinity within ourselves.
This is experienced as a love of G-d defined as Ahavah Rabba, a love that transcends all limitations of perception and intellect.
However, as explained previously, this level in not attainable by means of the limited faculties of intellect and emotion with which we are endowed. The best that we can achieve by our own efforts is a superficial experience of love of Hashem.
