“And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to Heaven; and behold, the angels of G-d were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the L-rd stood above it and said, "I am the L-rd…..” (Genesis 28)

It is with this verse that the Torah introduces us to the famous dream known as “Jacob’s Ladder”. This most powerful vision and prophecy experienced by Jacob is also a metaphor for each of us - there exists a ladder in our own lives that connects us to the Divine. This course will examine how we find and climb this ladder.
