“We need not erect monuments for the righteous, their accomplishments are their memorials.” (Bereshit Rabbah, 82:11)
Our beloved teacher Warren Kenton (Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi) passed away on the 21st of September last year. To mark the one-year anniversary of his death, we have posted video excerpts from our media project, Work of a Kabbalist.
His latest book Kabbalistic Contemplations will be published very soon.
Moreover, this year is the 50th anniversary of Warren writing his first Kabbalah book The Tree of Life. The original manuscript is preserved in this small notebook.
In the same year 1971 Warren started teaching Kabbalah and formed his first study group in London. Over time his work expanded worldwide to become the school and the Kabbalah Society we have today.
Warren, thank you for leaving us such a remarkable legacy!
The Toledano line of Kabbalah has its roots in Medieval Spain where the three branches of the Abrahamic revelation met in a civilised cosmopolitan atmosphere. Kabbalah then brought about the esoteric fusion of religion and philosophy. In our time we relate its ancient theories and practices to modern psychology, science, and art.
The hallmark of the Toledano line is Jacob’s Ladder, a metaphysical scheme of four interlocking Worlds that originate in the primordial Tree of Life. This diagram of Divine principles, paths, and triads is the key to comprehending the plan of Existence and our part in it.
The Kabbalah Society has study groups on all five continents and periodically holds conferences and workshops in different countries. The Principal Tutor, WARREN KENTON (1933-2020) wrote under his Hebrew name Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi. His books have been translated into sixteen languages that present the Toledano version of the Teaching in a contemporary form.
