L’Dor VaDor – Generations of Jewish Folk Magic with Cooper Kaminsky

A part of the Voices of Folk Magic Series
This class will livestream via Zoom at 7pm Eastern on Sunday December 18th 2022 and will be available as a video for viewing afterwards 

Magical traditions are best preserved when they are passed down from one generation to the next. Jewish folk magic is a rich kaleidoscopic quilt work- fragmented together by our histories, texts, faith, and our ability to survive in diaspora.

This class is an exploration of some of the foundations of Jewish Folk Magic. We will explore the importance of Jewish magic in the ancient world through seminal texts such as the PGM and the Sefer Ha’Razim, and discover how Jewish magic evolved during the time of the Talmud, Kabbalah, and more. The second half of this class will be a hands-on approach to bringing some fundamentals of Jewish folk magic into our present day, and attuning our Jewish magical traditions to our modern sensibilities. Cooper will also share some personal techniques they have developed in their folk practice, that you can directly apply to our own magical path. L’Dor VaDor means “From Generation to Generation;” Together we will understand our place in this beautiful folk lineage, and carry this magical torch into the future.
