Kabbalah is an ancient religion that was solely taught to men over 40 because Rabbis believed that the concepts were too complex to understand. They thought only these select men would not misunderstand its teachings, and so it was kept this way until recently. Interestingly enough Hollywood stars have taken a huge interest in ancient religion. What’s the attraction between Kabbalah and non-Jewish Hollywood stars?
