VAIL, Colorado ” From its rapid rise on the popularity map just about a decade ago, the study of Kabbalah ” Jewish mysticism ” has remained all the rage, with Jews and non-Jews alike finding more meaning in life through ancient spiritual teachings.

The Chabad Jewish Center is bringing a master Kabbalist to the valley. Rabbi Dr. Laibl Wolf, an authority on the intersection of psychology, spirituality and Kabbalah, will be lecturing in Vail. Wolf, an Australian native, attorney, educator and ordained Rabbi, will appear at the Chabad Jewish Center at 1000 Lions Ridge Loop in Vail on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. A suggested donation for the lecture is $18.
