Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Dovid?
Good question. Dovid is an anomaly. At seventy, dovid has yet to find his place in this world. He is thoroughly studied in Hebrew and Aramaic and is devoted to the Torah but he is not religious; dovid is a wanderer but has recently found permanence in Portland, Oregon. Dovid has written 15 books, five of which are in print. Dovid thinks, he can radically change the world.
2) Why do you spell Kabbalah with a C, as in Cabala?
The true nature of the Jewish mystical tradition is patently feminine, which is denote by the curve of the C more than the line of the K. Furthermore, the Cabala is the most hidden and therefore the most feminine of Jewish studies; the written text of the Torah is considered masculine while the Oral Torah is feminine––the Cabala is the most hidden of all Jewish knowledge.
