About the author (2003)

Rabbi Max Weiman has studied Judaism in Israel and the U.S. since 1983. He spent time in a variety of traditional yeshivot, and received ordination from the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem through Yeshivat Aish HaTorah in 1992. At that point he began teaching for Aish, an international Jewish education movement. In 1999 he formed the Kabbalah Club and has been teaching via classes, email, newspaper articles, and a website www.kabbalahclub.com. His articles have appeared in the Jewish Press, Intermountain Jewish News, St. Louis Jewish Light, Pathfinder, Bulletin of the Astrological Association of St. Louis, and Today’s Astrologer and various websites. Another book of his, Kabbalah and Astrology, has been published this year by Jason Aronson Publishers. Rabbi Weiman lives in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife, Chava, and their six children.
