Sessions meet for six consecutive Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m., through Dec. 12 at Chabad Community Shul, 44 Burrill St., Swampscott. Through the examination of the entire spectrum of what it means to be human, “The Kabbalah of You” offers recipes, tips and techniques for discovering where one’s true meaning lies, and making it a part of one’s daily existence. Sessions help participants see life as the mysterious, challenging and satisfying wonder that it really is. The program is designed for people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those with no prior experience or background.
