On Monday, September 21st our dear teacher and friend, Warren Kenton – Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi – passed on.
A man of wisdom and spiritual stature, together with a sense of humour and practical nature, he used his long life to the full, writing books, teaching groups and being a spiritual mentor to so many.
To Warren, we owe our understanding of the Tree of Life and Jacob’s Ladder, and the ability to recognise the difference between true substance and mere form. He taught us to find the Light within ourselves and to live the teaching.
He died during the ‘Days of Awe’, on the Autumn Equinox when day and night are in balance – when autumn’s grain is spring’s seed. It is now for us to continue the invaluable legacy that he left us.
We are just so grateful for his life, teaching and presence.

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 is Warren Kenton, who writes under his Hebrew name Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi. His books, which have been translated into sixteen languages, present the Toledano version of the Teaching in a contemporary form.
