Four Entered the Pardes: The Self Engaged in the Search for God and Meaning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our Rabbis have taught that four entered into the Pardes: Ben Azai,  Ben Zoma, “Acher” (Elisha Ben Avuyah) and Akiba. Ben Azai gazed and died. Ben Zoma gazed, and went insane. Acher became an apostate. Rabbi Akiba entered, and exited in peace. Explore this story of the four rabbis as a metaphor for the processes each of us may go through, often simultaneously, in our spiritual journeys and theological struggles. An opportunity to share, learn, be supported and to support others.
