Salon@Home: Andrée Aelion Brooks

Friday, December 10, 2021 6 Tevet 5782

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

This month's presenter will be TBH member Andrée Aelion Brooks, presenting The Evil Eye, Amulets, Ghosts and Demons: exploring Jewish superstitions and mystical practices through the ages.

 From biblical times to the present time, Jews have had their superstitions. Where and how did these beliefs originate? How did the rabbis react? Have they changed over the centuries? Where does Kabbalah fit in? And, by the way, what exactly is Kabbalah?  An excursion into the world of Jewish mystical ways.

Andrée Aelion Brooks is an award-winning journalist, author and lecturer, now specializing in lesser-known aspects of Jewish history. She is popular on the speaker circuit particularly for her style of story telling, humor and insights -- qualities she brings to the topics she covers.
