Learn Kabbalah

What is the world? Who are we? What is the significance of our lives and actions? What is God? How can we come to know ultimate reality in our own experience? How do the body, heart, mind, and spirit fit together? And what are the roles of myth, ritual, morality, eroticism, meditation, ecstasy, sacred text, and prayer on the spiritual path?

These are some of the questions asked by the Kabbalah. You probably know that, in recent years, the Kabbalah has become very popular — even, a fad. I would invite you to set aside whatever preconceptions you may have about Kabbalah, though, since chances are, what is really there is not what you expect.

To be honest, I have been studying Kabbalah for twelve years, and each day, it isn’t what I expect either.

If you are new to Kabbalah, and want to know what it is, or if you know a bit about Kabbalah and want to deepen your knowledge and practice, you are in the right place.

This website is a free source of Kabbalistic teachings, texts, and resources. It is created by Jay Michaelson, a teacher and student of Kabbalah, meditation, and spirituality. Jay has learned Kabbalah from rabbis in yeshivas, and from professors in universities, and has created this site to allow the wisdom of the Kabbalah to spread to a whoever is interested in receiving it. While the subjects of the Kabbalah are, by definition, mysteries, the Kabbalah does not have to be mysterious - or expensive - to learn.
