* Shaul Youdkevitch is an internationally renowned and revered spiritual teacher. Born and raised in Israel, Shaul always had a strong interest in science. While in college working towards a degree in biology, he met a Kabbalist and began to learn about the spiritual laws of the universe. He soon realized that there was a deep connection with these teachings and the laws of science. Shaul became fascinated by the comparison and set off to learn more and more about how the universe operates both physically and spiritually.

After several years of studying Kabbalah, Shaul was ordained as a Rabbi and began his career as a popular and sought after teacher. Since 1984, Shaul Youdkevitch has built up Kabbalah communities in Toronto, Boca Raton, Miami, Tel Aviv, Herzlia and other locations that still exist and are thriving today. He also has created a systematic way of teaching the esoteric principles of Kabbalah, so that it is obtainable and understandable to everyone. Kabbalah teachers all around the world currently use this educational model.
