Just the Gist

Kabbalah wasn’t always as popular as it is today. When it first started, it was in demand by only a few, who searched for the meaning of their lives. These first Kabbalists continued to develop it through the generations, adapted it to the changing times and made it more scientific, as our generation demands. This chapter introduces the way Kabbalistic texts work and how they have developed over the centuries to make their wisdom more available and accessible to everyone.

In particular, this chapter discusses the work of the most “universal” of all Kabbalists: Rav Yehuda Ashlag. Rav Ashlag clearly stated that Kabbalah study is open for all, that Kabbalah can be disclosed, distributed, and taught to everyone, without any consideration of age, race, sex, or religion.
