A question for our Jewish brothers and sisters, or anyone else who knows anything about the Kabbala.
I’ve been re-reading Michener’s The Source, and just finished a long chapter that deals with this Kabbala. It provides a lot of information about what it is, but this chapter takes place in the 16th century, some of it in Spain, some of it in Israel (Safed).
I’m wondering what the modern understanding of Jewish mysticism is, and if anyone can give a link to good info about it.
I’ve done a little browsing, and it seems apparent that there is a pop culture version of the Kabbala that probably isn’t valid.
