The mystical school of thought came to be known as Kabbalah, from the Hebrew root Qof-Beit-Lamed, meaning "to receive, to accept." The word is usually translated as "tradition." In Hebrew, the word does not have any of the dark, sinister, evil connotations that it has developed in English.

Kabbalah, Jewish mysticism, is the method by which any person can attain a higher level of reality. It teaches us (through books such as The Zohar , which was written in Tzfat) how to discover the way that brings us closer to the revelation of the Creator, while living in this world.

Kabbalah is the most famous form of Jewish mysticism. It flowered in 13th century Spain with the writing of the Zohar, which was originally attributed to the 2nd century sage Shimon bar Yohai. The Zohar is a commentary on the Torah, concerned primarily with understanding the divine world and its relation to our world.

Kabbalah is one of the most grossly misunderstood parts of Judaism. Some non-Jews (and even some Jews) describe Kabbalah as "the dark side of Judaism". Many of these misunderstandings arose largely from distortions of the teachings of Kabbalah by non-Jewish mystics and occultists. Kabbalah was popular among Christian intellectuals during the Renaissance and Enlightenment periods, who reinterpreted its doctrines to fit into their Christian dogma.

The kabbalah of the Zohar is a form of theosophic kabbalah, as it aims at initiating change within God. The kabbalah of Abraham Abulafia (1240-1291), on the other hand, is internally directed. It aims at affecting change within the mystic himself. Abulafia used chanting, meditation, and music to help him achieve this mystical experience. Like the theosophic kabbalists, Abulafia used the Torah ...

2. Our Sages teach that a recipient makes a covenant only with someone who makes a vessel of him. In my own upbringing this took place at three periods: 4 in the year 5651 [1891], in 5654 [1894], and in 5655 [1895]. (The Gemara 5 refers to a woman; here we are speaking of recipients in general.)

Jewish Kabbalah is a set of esoteric teachings meant to explain the relationship between the unchanging, eternal God—the mysterious Ein Sof (אֵין סוֹף ‎, "The Infinite") —and the mortal, finite universe (God's creation). It forms the foundation of mystical religious interpretations within Judaism.
