What is Kabbalah... and Why?

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.
