Kabbalah 2 - Class 1a Lineage Karen

I'd like to discuss with you about the lineage of Kabbalah and what is important about it and I think we should start with the actual Zohar itself Written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai, in a cave, where he lived for thirteen year together with his son Elazar. and came this book of writing. The answer is it didn't It took after he came out of the cave after he sat with his ten students together that Rabbi Aba pick up pen and paper and write the Zohar and then if we forward to ... in the year twelve hundred came Rabbi Moses de Leon in Spain who found the writings of Rabbi Shimon and there he took these writings brought them forward whether he edited or he rewrote certain states(?), I don't know the answer to that. I don't think anyone does Brought it to Israel, where a chosen group of people then was able to studied from it. And to go forward for us anywhere there was Rabbi Isaac Luria, who lived in Safed and who also lived for thirteen years on the Nile and studied solo. From there, he came to Israel and his student Chaim Vital found him and there together, they went on a mission to bring Kabbalah to the people. Now, at the same time, there was a great sage by the name of Rabbi Moses Cordevero who lived in Safed and it is said that there was a dream that came to Chaim Vital and in the dream the Ramak, Rabbi Moses Cordovero came to him and said that my way of understanding the Zohar is correct and the Ari's way of understanding is correct but in the time of the Mashiach, of the messiah the teaching of Rabbi Isaac Luria will be studied and learned. It's from there that we take the ideas that the way to teach Kabbalah is through the Lurianic(?) system So we follow from there to fast forward to Rav Ashlag who wrote the Sulam, the ladder, the explanation, and the understanding of the entire Zohar, which is in modern Hebrew and not in Aramaic, which made it easier, simplified for the people to now to be able to open the Zohar and to read it. From Rabbi Ashlag came Rabbi Brandwein. Rabbi Brandwein again, took the same teaching and portions of it, which he understood and wrote it again into Hebrew. And now we go to the Rav, who took the writings of the Zohar and the writings of Rav Brandwein and what the Centers have done is simplified even to a place that we, through a great effort, can studied and learn the words of these great sages. It's important for us to know the steps, the lineage, as to how its became the way we have the teachings in the Center, because our idea it's not to make you all tremendous scholars. Our idea it's to make you tremendous souls interested in taking these boxes for the rest of the people to the world and so, you will hear many interesting things through the course of this time and I hope, you can take them, use them and understand the purpose for which you are here. Thank you!
