Kabbalistic Aspects of Nahmanides’ Commentaries


Nahmanides’ commentary on the Torah is one of the great interpretive works in the Jewish tradition. It largely consists of an attempt to uncover the plain meaning of the text, as well as, a much smaller section in which he offers a kabbalistic interpretation. This session will examine some of Nahmanides’ “non kabbalistic” interpretations, with an eye towards some of the kabbalistic categories that may be driving them.
