Everyone Can Study Kabbalah

939.02Question: Why is there an opinion that women should not be taught Kabbalah?

Answer: Kabbalah in general was not taught to anyone. Throughout the millennia of its development, it was used only for a small period of time about 3,500 years ago. Since then, it stopped being practiced by people.

With the destruction of the First Temple, Kabbalah fell out of common use. It only existed for several decades during the wandering in the desert on the way from Egypt to the land of Israel.

With the destruction of the First Temple, it already started to erode from the people, and after the destruction of the Second Temple, it almost completely stopped being understood what it is and remained only as a destiny for individual Kabbalists.

But from what we study, it is clear that, on one hand, this is the path of individual development when a person—man or woman—individually enters into such contact with others in which they create a common group.

In it, according to a certain method, they achieve absolutely complete inner spiritual contact, rise above their “I” and begin to feel as “we” instead of “I.” That is, “we” is their common, collective “I.” And in this collective “I,” in this multifaceted connection between them, they see a new force, a new quality—the quality of mutual bestowal and love.
