The Names of God: The Names of God
Class description

Hello Everyone,

Today we will discuss the various names by which Hashem identifies Himself to Avraham Avinu in last week’s Torah portion.

Today’s session will be somewhat more technical than the previous two sessions.

Normally I do not print the Names of Hashem in the handouts. But this week, because we will be looking at the punctuation marks beneath the letters of Hashem’s various names so I printed out the Names. Therefore please do not print these pages on paper because then they would have to be disposed of in a  גניזה.

Hello Everyone

In our final meeting we will see the difference between the Rambam and the mystics/מקובלים in what they say about human attempts to describe God.
