A Peek Behind the Curtain: Kabbalah in Context”
“While most students of western occultism are familiar with the philosophical framework of the Hermetic Qabalah, popularized by the Golden Dawn, this presentation will explore kabbalah through a more Jewish lens and examine it in context with the broader Jewish magical tradition that emerged from antiquity through the Middle Ages.”

Lodge will be tyled at 7:30 pm.
Regular dress code applies – Tuxedo!
The meeting will commence with gathering in the banquet room at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m. Lodge will be tyled at 7:30 pm.
