  • Kabbalah Now
    [An interesting site that opens with these words: "Kabbalah, or received knowledge, is a method of perceiving the hidden aspects of the world according to the Jewish tradition. It is supposed to have been given to Moses on Mount Sinai, and to have been passed on, orally, until the time of the first Temple, the time of David. The first written accounts come from the first or second century, CE. So why study it now, in this age of technology? Are we not too advanced for such ancient ways?" Also refer to the Yahoo! Kabbalah directory in order to identify similar or contrasting sites.]
