The Kabbalah is the Jewish mystical tradition. The Kabbalistic wisdom, which is the oldest and most influential wisdom in the history of mankind, was given to the People of Israel along with all the other parts of the Torah at Mt. Sinai, in the year 2448 from world creation (1321 B.C.E.). As its Hebrew name implies, "kabbalah" means "receiving", and for thousands of years, the wisdom and secrets of Kabbalah were handed down orally from one generation to the next, yet remained virtually unknown and unapproachable to the general population. With the exception of a small and elite group of Jewish mystics and Sages that received the wisdom of the Kabbalah , very few even knew of its existence.
Thanks to developments in the field of Kabbalah that have been emerging now for hundreds of years, and led by the greatest Kabbalists, we are now able to enjoy the secrets and wisdom of the Kabbalah in unprecedented proportions.

Kabbalah investigates and explains the codes of both the universe and the soul of man. It meticulously describes the events that are unfolding in spiritual worlds and heavenly spheres, the world of the Zodiac and of the angels, and how such processes affect and influence us.

Such is the way and method of the Kabbalah: Every sphere with which it deals takes on a fascinating spiritual dimension, as it navigates toward the abstraction and mysterious enchantment of the upper worlds.The study of Kabbalah develops a high level of self-awareness. A person who's studying Kabbalah will learn how to recognize the powers of his soul, and the intellectual and emotive attributes interacting within it.
It then channels these traits toward a a process of meaningful personal growth and harmonious development. As a result, material and spiritual achievements are greatly improved. Kabbalah teaches how to add spiritual and cosmic meaning to every aspect of daily life, turning every daily routine into an inspiring experience.

The New Age

With the rediscovery of the Zohar by Rabbi Moshe De Leon, a new era began for the study of Kabbalah. As the Zohar and other Kabbalistic writings became more available, more and more people began delving into serious study.
