Shimon was born in Tunisia in 1958. He first connected to Kabbalah as a young man when a college friend brought him to The Kabbalah Centre. He has been an active member ever since. In 1985, he left his career as a mechanical engineer to become a staff member at the Centre. In 1988, Shimon married his wife, Rachel, and started teaching.

Shimon found fulfillment witnessing the impact Kabbalah had on others, seeing people open their hearts, and connecting to kabbalistic wisdom. He was known among his students for his warm personality and laid back approach. He aimed to give simple, yet profound lessons on how to apply the power of Kabbalah to daily life and he encouraged his students to find answers within themselves.

Shimon lived in France, Israel, New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. He spent every day of his life working towards eliminating pain and suffering in the world. Shimon left this word in 2016 but the light that he revealed lives on. Shimon and Rachel have five children.

Many of Shimon's classes are still available on Kabbalah.com. We love and miss you, Shimon.

Zohar Connection in Bedford
Sep 13

The Zohar teaches that every week of the year has its own unique energy that – when channeled through spiritual work – can assist us in every aspect of our life. As we grow and apply the power of each week’s energy to our life, we begin to experience a change in our consciousness, which in turn allows us to see the world through a much larger lens and generate major shifts in our lives.Everyday life looks a lot different when you’re tuned in to the big picture, as the change in perspective allows you to shed the trivial, overcome challenges and take control – week by week – of every facet of your life. This course offers you the opportunity to delve deeper into everything you’ve learned in The Power of Kabbalah courses and apply these dynamic concepts and tools to your life on an ongoing basis.
