About Us



Spiritual Start-Up

Live Kabbalah was started when a group of students gave me an ipad, when we relocated from Florida to Tzfat, Israel. We stayed connected online, through classes that I taught in Ascent of Tzfat, a spiritual center for learning which draws tens of thousands of visitors a year. These classes were the catalyst for building the Live Kabbalah website, allowing these visitors and students from around the world to continue learning, growing, and connecting from wherever they are on in the world.
