Kabbalah for the Masses?
The question above was on the mind of enough rabbis and academics to organize a conference around it. As I read the summary in the JewishJournal.com almost everybody who is somebody in today’s world of Kabbalah was there. Just look at the list of speakers and panelistst on the conference’s homepage. (I will be adding more books to my list based on that page.) The subtitle, setting the agenda for the event was: The Promise and Problems in Mainstreaming Jewish Mysticism. Based on the Jewish Journal piece it sounds like they managed to do that.
The Jewish Week also ran an informative article about the conference.
