Kabbala: A Brief Definition
by Baruch Emanuel Erdstein - Editor
and Staff writer, KabbalaOnline.org
Often referred to as the
"soul" of the Torah, the Kabbala is an ancient Jewish tradition which
teaches the deepest insights into the essence of G-d, His interaction with the
world, and the purpose of Creation. Kabbala teaches the essential Jewish cosmology,
integral to all other Torah disciplines.
Sometimes called "the Inner
Torah" or the "Wisdom of Truth", it offers a comprehensive overall
structure and plan for the universe, as well as a detailed understanding of the
particulars of our lives.
The student of Kabbala is made aware of the personal
as well as the collective rectification process and is encouraged to play an active
part in it.
