Kabbalah – Gates of Knowledge
Gila Gerzon
Translated from the Dutch
by Jennie Benedict

Gila is a teacher in the Toledano line of Kabbalah, leading groups in the Netherlands for many years. Kabbalah – Gates of Knowledge appeared in Dutch in 2017 and has become a source of inspiration to many Dutch students. This large and detailed work offers introductory chapters on the background of the Tradition, treatises on the Sefirot and the Worlds, reviews of the great Kabbalistic literature and Tree of Life exercises. Central is the attention given to meditation. Every chapter has its own meditation exercise. Basic steps in meditation are explained and the integrating of Inner Journey experiences clarified. The spiritual experiences of past and contemporary kabbalists are described, bringing the text to life.

This book is ideal for those wishing to incorporate the teachings on their own and as a manual for study groups.

I am delighted to see how Gila has developed Kabbalah for our period. This kind of updating has occurred throughout the history. Her treatment is precise and coordinates the modern mindset with the ancient and medieval kabbalistic tradition, keeping the Line alive. The blend of scholarship, contemporary psychology and practical exercises is just right. Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi

A clearly written introduction to the mysteries of Kabbalah. Bookshop of the Jewish Museum in Amsterdam

Kabbalah is made more approachable as a personal source of inspiration…  offering kabbalistic concepts, the entire map of consciousness in descriptions of the various levels and allusions to THAT which is beyond all concepts, and a whole set of tools useful to inner work…  a treasure hall. Ewald Wagenaar, editor of the Koorddanser

Deep and intense, to be read over and over, with light on every page. Dutch students

The book includes short reflections on a principle inspired by Halevi’s work and longer essays that, besides the classical kabbalistic topics, show how kabbalah can be applied to biology, psychology, literature, biblical study and philosophy.
