The Legacy of the Ari

Episode 190|May 10, 2022
The life of Kabbalist Isaac Luria (The Holy Ari)–the most important Kabbalist of the 16th century, and one of the most influential characters in the history and evolution of the wisdom of Kabbalah–is shrouded in mystery and legend. He was born in Jerusalem in 1534 and died at the young age of 38, after falling ill from an epidemic in the summer of 1572. At the age of eight, he lost his father and his family was left destitute. Desperate, his mother took young Isaac to live with his uncle in Egypt, where he stayed for several years until his arrival in Safed, where he lived and taught until his last days.
