Episode Summary

EDIT
Secrets of Kabbalah
AIRED:
An ancient, inspirational form of Jewish mysticism, Kabbalah has now reached cult-like popularity among celebrities and throughout America. But what is behind the new found fascination with this sacred body of wisdom? Once exclusively reserved for study by ultra-religious male scholars of Judaism, Kabbalah has recently become known as a multi-million dollar, celebrity-endorsed phenomenon. Secrets of Kabbalah strips away the hype and demystifies the writings that have been studied by Jewish scholars for thousands of years. Is the Kabbalah of the stars the same Kabbalah that Jewish scholars have studied for generations? Even as more and more people are seen wearing the red string bracelets associated with Kabbalah, the original teachings behind this seemingly new fad are in fact understood by precious few. The History Channel traces Kabbalah from its spiritual foundations to the present-day high-glamor incarnation in this fascinating program that debunks the myths surrounding this awe-inspiring ancient philosophy.moreless
