Anger and Kabbalah: Confronting Divine and Human Rage through the Zohar

Dr. Nathaniel Berman and Rabbi David Silber

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

8:00 pm

The Bible portrays God as capable of catastrophically destructive anger, as well as infinite mercy. Rabbinic texts severely condemn human anger, comparing it to idolatry, while portraying God as engaged in an internal struggle with his own anger. In the Zohar, the central work of Kabbalah, anger plays a central role in the cosmic drama. Unrestrained divine anger can lead to the emergence of a demonic realm, ruled by the diabolical Sama’el and Lilith. Human action is required to appease divine anger and restrain the evil forces. How should we, in our turbulent time, understand these Jewish stances to this much-decried emotion?
