About the KETORET Limmud
The upcoming Limmud will be focused on the fascinating theme of Ketoret (the Temple Incense). This “pleasing fragrance” will be explored from a variety of perspectives including its healing and transformative capacities as represented in the Torah and Midrash, its ritual and halachic ramifications as outlined in the Gemara and Codes, its liturgical applications as detailed in the Siddur and Machzor, and its symbolic and mystical associations as taught in Kabbalah and Chassidut. Additionally, we will be inspired by philosophical, scientific and poetic meditations on the sense of smell and its connection to intuition, memory and enchantment.
