This single session class will look at the career of one of the most fascinating figures in Jewish history, the 17th century false messiah Shabbatai Zvi. We'll look at his life, his influence and success, and the ideas from kabbalah that were used to explain his unusual actions, from marrying a Torah scroll to converting to Islam.
