About the Author

Leonora Leet received her Ph.D. from Yale University in 1960 and was a Professor of English at St. John's University. The author of Elizabethan Love Tragedy and many other scholarly works, she was engaged from 1978 until her death in 2004 in a massive reinterpretation of the Kabbalah. Her books on the Kabbalah are Renewing the Covenant, The Secret Doctrine of the Kabbalah, The Kabbalah of the Soul, and The Universal Kabbalah.


"A fascinating reinvention of the venerable tradition of the Kabbalah. Mystical adepts and beginners alike should enjoy Leet's advice about the meaning and strength of prayer and her renewed vision of Kabbalistic cosmology." * Library Journal *
"This is not another pop Kabbalah book. Dr. Leet has written for serious readers and aspirants who want to delve much deeper than the surface and work on their transformation. Her original approach is grounded in her own authentic discoveries in an ancient tradition." * Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi *
"Renewing the Covenant addresses some of the more thorny and complicated issues in Jewish law and Jewish texts, and relates these to issues that are of concern to people in the contemporary world who seek a spiritual path." * Michael Lerner, Editor, Tikkun *
"The first in a four-book project, Renewing the Covenant delivers on its promise of a new approach to Jewish ritual practice in tune with the spiritual attitudes of the 21st century. Leet synthesizes historical, textual, and linguistic analysis with kabbalistic meditation and Judaic tradition in this scholarly address of Jewish spiritual advancement. Focusing on the covenant between God and Israel as set forth in the Bible, Leet distills the essence of the most basic Jewish customs--Sabbath observance and ritual prayer--and recovers early Jewish meditative practices, which she then melds with kabbalistic meditative techniques. One might think that Renewing the Covenant decrees revolutionary change, but in reality it offers an accessible return path to the very foundations of sacred Jewish traditions and a revitalization of Jewish spirituality." * Brian Patterson, Amazon.com *
"In Renewing the Covenant Dr. Leet has made a brilliant contribution to the future of Jewish faith, with significant implications for Christianity and Islam as well. The scholarship, writing, and manifestations of personal insight and spiritual development are of the highest quality." * Ralph Abraham, author of Chaos, Gaia, Eros *
