Authors for Chabad Women Retreat
I read this blog entry and I realized it is a copy of an article from the Kansas City Jewish Chronicle. It describes a retreat designed for Jewish Chabad women. What grabbed my attention is the list of speakers at the end. It gave a peak for me into the world of Chabad books on Kabbalah. Most of the invited authors wrote several volumes and from the summarizer’s point of view some of them relate to Kabbalah. I will have to do a little bit more search on them, because so far I couldn’t find any extensive or sufficient information which I could use to evaluate the works.. For the time being let the edited list speak for itself.
- Rabbi Sholom B. Wineberg, director of Kansas City’s Chabad House, has written more than 25 books on Jewish mysticism, Torah and marriage. His newest three-volume work is titled “Healthy in Mind Body and Spirit.”
- Rabbi Yosef Y. Jacobson is a world-renowned expert on Kabbalah and Chassidut. He will be featured throughout the weekend teaching classes on Tanya, the seminal book of Chabad Chassidut. He is the author of the acclaimed tape series, “A Tale of Two Souls” and “Captain, My Captain,” and teaches Kabbalah, Chassidic spirituality and Talmud at the Rabbinical College Chovevay Torah in Brooklyn, N.Y.
- Devorah Alevsky is one of the creators of a series of Rosh Chodesh women’s groups and the Inner Visions Kabbalah workshop. Her topics include the significance of the three special mitzvot of the Jewish woman; lighting candles, making challah and Taharat Hamispacha – family sanctity – as well as the origins of the wedding ceremony.
