Time to Reveal the Wisdom
Kabbalah is defined by scholars as “Jewish mysticism.” However, Kabbalists define the wisdom of Kabbalah quite differently. According to Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag (Baal HaSulam), arguably the greatest Kabbalist of the twentieth century and author of the authoritative Sulam (Ladder) commentary on The Book of Zohar, the purpose of the wisdom of Kabbalah is “the revelation of His Godliness to His creatures in this world.” Thus, Kabbalists regard their lore as a highly practical and purposeful teaching method.
In the first three issues of Kabbalah Today, we introduced the wisdom of Kabbalah as explained by great Kabbalists throughout history. In this issue, we would like to discuss its implementation in our lives.
The reason is simple: the world isn’t getting any better, and the role of Kabbalah is to improve the world. This makes the need to discuss how we can adapt Kabbalistic principles into our society far more pressing than ever before.
Therefore, while expanding on the essence and principles of Kabbalah, we will also discuss how they should be introduced to humanity according to the teachings of Baal HaSulam, and the role of the Jewish people on the process.
We hope you will enjoy reading Kabbalah Today and we welcome your feedback, so that we can provide you with the most accessible, informative, and enjoyable paper about Kabbalah and its importance to our future.
