The Seven Sciences That Originate From Kabbalah

каббалист Михаэль ЛайтманA question I received: You have mentioned that there are seven sciences that originate from one root, Kabbalah. What are these sciences?

My Answer: Kabbalah is the root of all the sciences because it speaks about the common law of the universe, the law of similarity. This law is also expressed in these sciences.

The sciences that originate from Kabbalah manifest in our matter divided into seven disciplines: grammar, rhetoric, logic, arithmetic, music, geometry, and astronomy. All of the other sciences in our world are their derivatives.


  1. Are these the seven sciences from Koheleth 7:5? They do not seem so important in Salomon´s words…so in Buber about the rabbi Šmelke of Mikulov (Seven sciences)…(I´ve opened the Erzählungen of the Chassidim to look for an answer to the feeling of nonsense connected with my dissertation on Interpreting Studies a while ago….it seems I will have to work hard)

  2. I’m Roman Catholic and I’m currently teaching myself how to read in Hebrew, so I can read the Torah in it’s original language. I feel that it will be very beneficial my Kabbalah studies. My questions is: Would it hinder/or slow my studies in Kabbalah? Do I need to study Hebrew?
    I’m just a beginning student.
