Does the Big Bang Theory — the prevailing cosmological model for the creation of the universe from a singularity to an ever expanding universe — have its roots in religious and mystical teachings? Or, as some have argued, has it deemed the notion of a Creator superfluous?
Science hasn’t even touched upon the personal and emotional implications of the Big Bang and the fascinating parallels between cosmology, psychology and spirituality.
Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this 18 Elul workshop — honoring the birthday of the two great mystics, the Baal Shem Tov and the Alter Rebbe — and discover the fascinating mystical origins of Big Bang Theory. Find out how Carl Sagan couldn’t have been more wrong when he wrote that the Big Bang Theory renders “a universe with no edge in space, no beginning or end in time, and nothing for a Creator to do.”
Explore an intriguing theory, that by probing the Kabbalistic cosmology of creation — as elucidated by the mystics born today — we can uncover new and vital elements in understanding Big Bang Theory and perhaps resolve some of its continuing puzzles and problems. Above all, learn the personal and psychological applications of these ideas, and how they call come together in one holistic unified system, a universal DNA integrating the macro-cosmic and microcosmic, from the cosmos to the sub-atomic.
