What is the Kabbalah? Kabbalah is an aspect of Jewish
mysticism. It consists of a large body of speculation on the nature of divinity, the creation, the origin and fate of
the soul, and the role of human beings. It also includes meditative, devotional, magical and mystical practices which
were taught only to a select few; for this reason, Kabbalah is regarded as an esoteric offshoot of Judaism. However,
some aspects of the Kabbalah have been studied and used by non-Jews for several hundred years.
