Editorial Reviews

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.

Format: DVD
I am reviewing this material strictly from the perspective of wanting to know a little more about the Kabbalah. I have friends who study this and who often speak of it but before now didn't even have enough knowledge to entertain a discussion on the subject.

I feel that this video (at least) has given me a starting point for that. I read the other reviews and they seemed quite critical as far as the specifics, however I think if you are coming from a place where you know next to nothing of jewish mysticism then this is as good a starting point as any.

I was entertained and satisfied with this video. Perhaps it is a "101" class (to some) but I think it did its job. It kept my attention and made me want to study a little further on the subject. They clearly state that you can spend a lifetime studying this material without fully understanding all of it, then why would this be a bad place to start? Since awareness of any spiritual knowledge is but one lesson leading into another, I would not be so critical of this particular DVD. For those of you who like this type of subject matter along with The History Channels support, then you should like this DVD. I recommend it.

I saw this program on the History Channel and just had to have it in my library. If you are Jewish (my husband is) and have an interest in Kabbalah, you will be iintrigued by this documentary, especially if you are new to Kabbalah. Nicely done product.

Format: DVD
There are a lot of incorrect information in this video, i.e. they mentioned that God's language is Hebrew; Hebrew language is a few thousands of years old, and God created this world millions of years ago or even more. I have a feeling that it was made as an Ad for the Kabbalah Center in LA. An israeli Kabalistic/Cabalistic rabi, Dr. Michael Laitman, mentioned that Kabbalah is two kinds: white kabbalah, and black kabbalah. He also confirmed that kabbalah practiced in US is the black one.
The origin of kabbalah is Egyptian. Ancient Egypt had the same tree of life, and kabbalistic teachings way before the birth of Judaism. An Egyptian wisdom keeper mentioned that who wrote the old testament/bible were the followers of Aton in old Egypt, and they created the hebrew language.
Kabbalah is similar to any esoteric teachings such as in Hinduism, Gnoses, Taoist, Sufism....Even in Christianity you will find these teachings encoded in the New Testament.

Format: DVD
This is pretty standard tv: watered down, without any real insight or usefulness. I suppose it is ok as an introduction to one way of viewing the history, but like all history, it is really just a collection of repeated opinions. I liked Sex: The Secret Gate to Eden a lot better.
