Avraham Sutton is an Orthodox Torah mentor, teacher and author. For over 25 years, he has been learning and teaching prophetic Torah, kabbalah, talmud, midrash, chassidut, prayer and meditation, and sacred song. Born in 1949 in Los Angeles to Syrian Sefardic parents, he attended the University of California (U.C.L.A., Berkeley, Santa Cruz), graduating in 1972 with a major in "Communication" (which included the History of Religion and Mythology, History of Consciousness, and the Psychology of Dreams and the Soul).
Avraham Sutton made aliyah in 1974. Since that time, he has studied with some of the leading Torah and kabbalah teachers of our time, and has translated, edited and/or authored over 15 major works in English on the deeper significance of Torah for our age. As well, he edited and updated - Israel and Mankind by Rabbi Raphael Eisenberg (posthumously, with the author's widow), which has since been translated into French, Russian, and most recently Hebrew. He compiled, edited and annotated Innerspace - Introduction to Kabbalah, Meditation and Prophecy from transcripts of classes given by the late Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan. Since its publication in 1990, Innerspace continues to be considered one of the finest introductions to authentic Jewish mysticism in the English language. Subsequently, he edited the second volume of Rabbi Kaplan's celebrated Handbook of Jewish Thought. Projects-in-process include a major work on Jewish Prayer and Meditation, an interpretative translation and commentary on the Psalms of King David, and a series of translations of major works clarifying the deeper dimensions of the concept of The Final Redemption.
A teacher of the inner path of Torah to people from all walks of life, his approach is highly integrative and sensitive to the needs and issues of our time. He specializes in creating personally tailored learning programs for religious teachers and clergy, professionals, educators, psychologists, health practitioners and scientists who are seeking deeper understanding of their own fields in light of the deeper teachings of the Torah. Both in his teaching and his original translations and commentaries, he harmonizes the most advanced theories of science and psychology with the deep inner wisdom of the ancient prophets and sages. He lives with his wife and family in Telz Stone, in the Judean hills, close to Jerusalem.
