Most books about The Qabalah (Cabalah, Kabalah...spell it however you want, and don't worry about it) will put you to sleep-thus are not conducive to teaching the subject. However, The Good Rabbi has figured-out a way to trick us into staying-awake long-enough not-only to get through a chapter, but THE ENTIRE BOOK !
My wife and I both finished this book very quickly-in fact, we could not put it down. After reading the book, my wife made some wonderful Qabalah Flash Cards, based-upon The Good Rabbi's work, "777" (Crowley --ISBN: 0877286701) and "Paths of Wisdom," by John Michael Greer (ASIN: 1567183158 ). We have found this is the easiest way to learn Qabalistic Correspondences, The Hebrew Alphabet, etc. My wife's idea was brilliant and we now have requests for the Flash Cards, from other would-be Chicken Qabalists.
"The Chicken Qabalah" is, without question, the most fascinating book I have ever read, on the subject! Anyone who can make The Qabalah interesting as The Good Rabbi has should get a Gold Medal, or...perhaps, a Gold Chicken award.
I will treasure my copy of "The Chicken Qabalah" and give it a clear-contact-paper cover to protect it on it's journey about the house-it doesn't take a Psychic to see that this book will be a constant resource / reference in my studies and will rarely find it's way back to the bookshelf.Read more ›
Of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford
By Lon Milo DuQuette
Samuel Weiser, 2001
Reviewed by Poke Runyon
After some thirty years of studying, practicing and even daring to
teach what is called "Hermetic Qabalah" (or Kabbalah or Cabala, or
what ever ) I was recently confronted by a person (not even Jewish)
who condescendingly informed me that the word was pronounced
"Kab-ah-LAH" and that if I had not studied it under a bone fide Rabbi
I really knew nothing about it. Even though I had taken a class in
Jewish mysticism in college from a real Rabbi, that didn't seem to be
good enough. I was a "Chicken Qabalist" and I was made to feel as if I
should sit in the back of the metaphysical bus.
Before the mid-1970s we Hermetic qabalists lived in a happy dream
world where we thought we actually were studying and practicing a
deeply profound system of spiritual growth and magical attainment
based on long-forgotten medieval Jewish and renaissance Rosicrucian
roots. We had no idea the "real" Kab-ah-LAH had no Tarot cards, no
Pagan Gods (certainly no Pagan Goddesses!), very little astrology, and
absolutely no magick. But then came our sad awakening. Faced with too
many brilliant young people committing themselves to various forms of
Eastern mysticism, Jewish Biblical and Talmudic scholars, led by
Greshom Scholem and followed by Aryeh Kaplan, dusted off and
refurbished the old, nearly forgotten orthodox Jewish kabbalah.
We Hermetic qabalists (if we even dared to call ourselves qabalists
at this point ) were now second class metaphysical citizens.Read more ›
