What is Authentic Kabbalah?:  . . . and why that’s important

Kabbalah is a received tradition, but a living one, sprouting, growing and blossoming in the most creative ways, yet always organically bound to its roots and its original seed. The challenge is to discern between true Kabbalah and grafted branches . . .

The interviewer really had a way of twisting his explanation and confusing his discussion. She really took things off on a tangent. Especially when she asked if he was comparing life to a computer game!? She really lost it for me there, He was going great until she obscured it. Questions need to be practical and tangible! Reply

Who can practice and learn authentic Kabbalah?? That would make a great lecture, that I wouldn't want to miss.
who can interpret the Zohar?
who can truly read and know the branches?
who can know the 5 worlds?

"It was only passed on to a select few."- Rabbi Freeman

It's all about the Hebrew...some of the secrets, are hidden in the texts itself...
learning Hebrew is key...practice of Kabbalah comes with awareness of it.
thankyou Rabbi Freeman Reply

In hearing this, my moment has found something fundamentally familiar with the next. Let us step on the stones we are given. Thank you Tzvi : ) Reply

What is Authentic Kabbalac Rabbi Freeman,
It is hard to express myself as beautiful and as elocuent as you and Ms Hendrie. All I can say is that when I am listening to you all teachers at Chabad, I feel at home. I feel that I am part of all of you so deeply. I am writing these words with all sincerety in my heart. About 15 years ago, I had a dream seeing myself in a santuary made of Accasia wood. The Ark of the Covenant was there, and so was a white like snow lamb by it. The name Jud, Heh, Vav, Heh, was written in Hebrew on the wall. When I saw myself there I asked how or who brought me there, and all I remember seeing was the Four Letter Word. At that time I did not know what it meant. I started searching for the meaning. Today I am studying from Chabad.org. I also found that my parents from both sides were Sephardic Jews from Spain and France. I have not been able to prove it yet. What would you say to me about this experience? I want to convert to Judaism. Can you help me? Reply
