Answer: I am interested, for example, in music, comedies, and witty jokes. I love traveling in the world. Besides the fact that I travel to conventions, twice a year, I take a vacation with my wife in some country where we walk a lot. That is all.
Question: It is understandable that each person has a favorite way of spending his time. In this regard, what can you recommend according to the wisdom of Kabbalah?
Answer: If a person is involved with studying the wisdom of Kabbalah, he cannot have great materialistic hobbies.
For example, I don’t see that any of my students are involved with stamp collecting.
Kabbalists respect physical exercise and sports. Movement is imperative so that one’s head will work well. But what sport? Simply walking or swimming is good. But everything else—is dedicating yourself to spiritual work.
