Transcript of Kabbalah

Cabala Definition: “a system of esoteric theosophy and theory developed by rabbis, reaching its peak about the 12th and 13th centuries, and influencing certain medieval and Renaissance Christian thinkers. It was based on a mystical method of interpreting Scripture by which initiates claimed to penetrate sacred mysteries. Among its central doctrines are, all creation is an emanation from the Deity and the soul exists from eternity.” Cabbala in Hebrew is "receiving." Traditionally, one was not allowed to start studying with Kabbalah until they have reached the age of forty and completed their education with Torah and Talmud. In night, the boy Eli Wiesel could not wait to study Kabbalah. According to one of Jewish scholar, Kabbalah is one of the most misunderstood parts of Judaism because mystics, occultists and even Christians of Renaissance and Enlightenment. It is one of the most sacred text of Jewish people that is hard to understand. Holocaust was an event when Nazi tried to systemically eliminate the race of Jews. Jews held onto Kabbalah through Holocaust despite the hardships. Holocaust Cabbala Centre Kabbalah Centre in LA, California is led by Philip Berg. It is not recognized by traditional Jews and that teaches simplified version of Kabbalah. In 2005, Kabbalah Centre made a controversial statement saying that Holocaust happened because Jews failed to follow teachings of Kabbalah. In more traditional sense, occurrence of Holocaust changed Jewish interpretation of Kabbalah forever. Sources: http://www.jewfaq.org/kabbalah.htm
