In affiliation with the Kabbalah Society (www.kabbalahsociety.org),  this line of Kabbalah follows the Toledano Tradition dating back to medieval Spain where the three branches of the Abrahamic revelation met in a civilized cosmopolitan atmosphere, not unlike our own epoch. Here the Kabbalah brought together an esoteric fusion of religion and philosophy. In our time we relate its ancient theories and practices to contemporary psychology, science and art.

The hallmark of the Toledo line is Jacob’s Ladder, a metaphysical scheme of four interlocking worlds that originate in the primordial Tree of Life mandala of Kabbalah. This diagram composed of Divine principles, paths and triads is the key to comprehending the plan of Existence and our part in it. The group also uses classical texts including the Book of Formation (Sefer Yetzirah), the Zohar, and the Sefer Bahir, as well as the writings of Rabbi Isaac Luria and Rabbi Cordovero, and each meeting includes a discussion of one of the portions of the Pentateuch.
