Yakov Leib haKohain

external link Yakov Leib haKohain is the Hebrew birth-name of the Jewish poet, author, teacher and Sabbatian Kabbalist, Lawrence G. Corey, Ph.D. who also was given the names John-Francis, Aziz Mehemed Effendi and Kali Dass upon his ritual conversions, as a Sabbatian Jew, to the Catholic Church, Islam and Vedanta, respectively. He holds a doctorate in Jungian Studies and Comparative Religion, and his poetry and essays have appeared in literary magazines and scholarly journals such as Midstream, Evergreen Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, The Catholic Critic, Dor L'Dor: Journal of the World Jewish Bible Society of Jerusalem, The Priest: A Journal of Catholic Theology, Newsletter of the Orthdox Jewish Teacher's Association of New York, Library Journal of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, Choice: A Yearly Anthology of Poetry, Modern Jew in Search of a Soul, and an upcoming issue of Kabbalah: Journal for the Study of Jewish Mystical Texts. Before his retirement in 1992, he was scholar-in-residence, for over twenty years, at the Center for Transpersonal Studies of Hermosa Beach, California - during which time he was a frequent guest lecturer at the South Bay Kehilla (a covertly Sabbatian Jewish congregation), The Vedanta Society of Southern California, and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. He is now the founder and moderator of the Donmeh of the Internet, a world-wide virtual community of over 300 scholars and lay-people dedicated to the teaching, learning and practice of 16th century Lurianic Kabbalah as reconfigured in the 17th century by the Jewish Messiah and Avatar, Sabbatai Zevi and his prophet and chief exegete, Nathan of Gaza.
