, chief of the
and one of the 10 sephi-
rot of the Kabbalistic
TREE OF LIFE
. In rabbinic lore of
the ninth century, Kemuel guards the gate to
reaches the top of Mount Sinai to receive
the law from God, he sees a cloud floating there and
steps inside it. He is at once in the presence of a great
light similar to that of the burning bush. The cloud
bears him up to heaven, and he loses track of time. The
cloud stops at the gate of the
and he gets
out. The angel Kemuel, who guards the gate, admon-
ishes him for trying to enter heaven. Moses tells the
angel he has come to receive the Torah, and the gate
opens instantly. Seeing that it is God’s will, Kemuel

As an archon, Kemuel stands at the windows of
heaven. He mediates the prayers of Israel with the
princes of the seventh heaven.
In the Revelation of Moses, Kemuel is the leader of
