International Society for Sephardic Progress calls upon His Honor
HaRav Yitzaq Kaduri, shelita, the foremost kabbalist of
the Jewish world to reject blessing Madonna.
International Society for Sephardic Progress has sent a
formal request to His Honor HaRav Yitzaq
shelita, the foremost kabbalist of our generation, to deny
American pop star Madonna a blessing, on her up coming visit to
entertainer Madonna has been taking lessons in a bizarre version
of Kabbalah (which is not a religon--but is a part of Judaism)
at the Kabbalah Centre, a cult-like organization founded
in Los Angeles by Philip Berg. Madonna's zeal for Berg's teachings
have become a catalyst for the over-sexed pop star to reportedly
donate more than $6 million dollars to Berg's center in London.
"Kabbalah Water" and other meaningless token items,
Berg exploits some of Judaism's most important ideals. For example,
Berg exploits the Zohar, a holy book of Judaism which was revealed
to the world in 14th century Spain by a Jew named Moses de Leon.
Berg sells this expensive multi-volume set to his "students,"
then "teaches" them to scan the book with their finger
tips. The Zohar, written in Aramaic, is read according to the
Kabbalah Centre by looking at the letters without needing to know
their meaning--this is of course is an absurd idea and is not
consistent with Judaism.
objective (according to press reports) is to arrive in Israel
and seek the legitimacy of her aberrant ways by obtaining a blessing
from Judaism's most renowned mystic, and inasmuch she will be
seeking validation of her ways, as well as that of the Kabbalah
Centre. For this reason, the International Society for Sephardic
Progress asks that His Honor Rav Yitzaq Kaduri, shelita
deny any request of the pop star, for her self-indulgent games
make a mockery of Judaism and the Jewish people.
