Welcome to the International Kabbalah Society

The International Kabbalah Society is dedicated to preserving the spiritual legacy of Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi and wisdom of the Toledano Tradition as well as inspiring the study of Kabbalah for our time.

New Contemplation Theme: Schools of the Soul

A large part of Halevi’s oral teaching came in responding to students’ questions. Such group discussions sometimes covered topics that were not written down in books. We have compiled from group and workshop recordings over the years, questions and answers, discussions and meditations to give insights into Kabbalah as a living tradition. When you study the theory and practise by observation, the Tree becomes alive and a helpful guide for contemplation and meditation.

Articles, Q&A, video, audio, and meditations from Halevi’s archives, centered around Schools of the Soul.

Halevi founded a School of the Soul called the Toledano Tradition. The school currently has study groups on all five continents and periodically holds conferences and workshops in different countries. 

View all themes: The Tree of Life, Providence, Transformation, The Psyche, Ladder of Humanity, Fate and Destiny, Four Worlds, What is Time?

The Ten Days of Awe, or the High Holy Days, begins with the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, and finishes with the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.
The Ten Days of Awe is the opportunity to stop and reflect.
