A surprising feature of the Jewish mystical tradition known as Kabbalah is the degree to which it came to influence 19th century religious thinkers in Europe and North America. This talk will describe one important example of this phenomenon - the impact of Kabbalah on Joseph Smith, founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
The lecture will begin at 4 P.M. at the University of Arizona Hillel Foundation located at 1245 East 2nd Street. The event is free and open to the public. Parking will be available across the street at the 2nd Street Garage.
